Here is my best explanation:

'part-time judge' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'arrange again to incorporate first of cases' is the subsidiary indication.

'arrange again' becomes 'reorder' ('order' is an answer for 'arrange' so perhaps 'reorder' is OK for 'arrange again').

'to incorporate' indicates putting letters inside.

'first of cases' becomes 'c' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'reorder' placed around 'c' is 'recorder'.

'for' is the link.
