Tottenham win latest Olympic stadium fight
Wednesday 24 August 2011
Tottenham today won the latest match in a legal battle over the future of the 2012 Olympic Stadium.
A High Court judge in London gave the club the go-ahead to challenge a decision made in favour of West Ham for the use of the £486million venue in Stratford, east London, after the Games end next summer.
Earlier this year the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) opted for a bid put forward by West Ham.
But today Tottenham successfully applied to Mr Justice Collins for permission to mount a legal challenge.
The judge's task at this stage was only to decide whether Tottenham has an "arguable" case.
A further hearing with full arguments from all sides will now have to be held.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
