Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe is to preside over a case involving a judge in the Cayman Islands.

Justice Ingrid Mangatal, 52, has been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and careless driving.

She was arrested on suspicion of impaired driving after a collision on September 4 last year.

Cayman Chief Justice Anthony Smellie asked Acting Governor Franz Manderson to appoint a magistrate from another jurisdiction to handle the case.

Mr Wolffe is expected to travel to Cayman next week to be sworn in, with a hearing scheduled for March 15.
