Spanish to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general) / Court of Auditors
Spanish term or phrase:vocal preopinante
"Los proyecto de fallos serán incorporados a solicitud del Vocal Preopinante y excluidos por inasistencia del mismo al Acuerdo"
This is part of an Article appearing in a bill for a Court of Auditors (Argentina). No Vocal is mentioned before...!
Since it was the first time I tried the KudoZ, I thought I didn't necessarily have to decline the other options! We all know that it all comes down to context, and so I wanted to decline none of them.
I actually chose 'presiding judge'- although I'm not satisfied with the judge bit - because he is the one that reports first, not the only one reporting.
Thanks everyone and sorry once more!

I thank you for answering so promptly! I preferred one of the other suggestions because of the context... but I'm grateful all the same!
Explanation: Un vocal es un miembro de un órgano colegiado, sea juez o no.
"preopinante" significa "ponente". Por ejemplo, en el Parlamento Europeo se le llama "reporter" (aunque esta palabra es muy polisémica, incluso en el propio Parlamento Europeo). En este caso pienso que se trata de un juez.
