A decision on whether it was unlawful for a police commissioner to suspend a chief constable from his job will not be known for weeks.
Dr Alan Billings suspended David Crompton after he appeared to justify police questioning of fans’ behaviour after the Hillsborough disaster.
His comments came after a jury concluded force conduct contributed to or caused the deaths of 96 fans.
The High Court reserved a decision on whether the suspension was lawful.
Judges are expected to take between two and eight weeks to deliver a ruling.
