Leyton Orient launches judicial review into West Ham Olympic Stadium move
Leyton Orient Football Club has launched a judicial review into West Ham's proposed move into the Olympic Stadium.
Chairman Barry Hearn said he did not believe that the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) had been fair in choosing who should be the new tenants for the venue in Stratford.
It comes after Mr Hearn expressed fears that his club could be killed off unless the LLDC agrees to let the O's share the stadium with West Ham United.
The news also follows a report in the Sun newspaper on Monday which claimed that West Ham co-chairman David Gold expected to sign an agreement over the move on Saturday March 16.
West Ham are the preferred tenants for the stadium and had been hoping to move in time for the 2015-16 season.
It is the second time that Orient has launched a judicial review over the stadium.
A previous attempt to pick a tenant collapsed and had to be started again following the legal action and complaints from both Orient and Tottenham Hotspur FC.
