After nearly two decades in the lower tier of the country's judicial system, Senior Parish Judge Judith Pusey is heading to the Supreme Court.

Pusey is one of four parish court judges who will be sworn in as Supreme Court judges today, the Court Management Services (CMS) has confirmed.

According to the CMS, Pusey will be appointed to act as a puisne judge during a ceremony scheduled to take place at King's House.

Another parish court judge who will take the oath today to act as a puisne judge is Simone Wolfe-Reece, daughter of former Chief Justice Lensley Wolfe.

The others are Annmarie Nembhard and Natalie Hart-Hines, who will act as master-in-chambers at the Supreme Court.

Three acting puisne judges are to be appointed to their positions full time. They are Carolyn Tie, Stephanie Jackson-Haisley, and Sonya Wint-Blair.
