reporting judge (i.e., the one assigned to write the opinion)


Explanation:
This will work only in connection with a specific decision. If context is general as you suggest it may be, "rapporteur" will probably be best.
In a legislative context (legislator who steers a bill through a committee), you can use reporting officer.
