Leyton Orient lose latest battle in bid to share Olympic Stadium with West Ham
The League One side tried to take the decision to a judicial review
Thursday 19 September 2013
Leyton Orient bosses have lost the latest round of a fight for a share of the Olympic Stadium in London.
The League One football club claimed the London Legacy Development Corporation was wrong to award sole tenancy of the stadium to Premier League side West Ham, and bosses wanted the High Court to intervene.
Lawyers representing Leyton Orient asked a High Court judge to give the club the go-ahead to pursue a judicial review of the corporation's decision.
They outlined arguments to Mr Justice Lewis at a hearing in London.
But the judge, who also heard arguments from lawyers representing the corporation and West Ham, refused to allow Leyton Orient to pursue a judicial review.
