The temporary Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police has today won the right to return to work after a High Court judge ruled he should not have been suspended for the way he handled a race discrimination claim.
Neil Rhodes was suspended by the county's Police and Crime Commissioner, Alan Hardwick, in February. However, a High Court judge in Manchester today ruled the decision was "irrational and perverse" and quashed Mr Rhodes' suspension .
It is claimed he helped a senior Muslim lawyer from another force use his ethnicity to pursue damages following his dismissal. Mr Rhodes strenuously denied any wrong-doing and asked a judge at the High Court in Manchester to grant a judicial review so he could get it quashed.
