LONDON (Reuters) - The president of Britain’s Supreme Court said on Thursday that she hoped the judges would deliver a ruling early next week on whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament in the run-up to Brexit was lawful or not.

Brenda Hale was speaking at the end of three days of legal arguments on the issue.
