Orient seek legal advice after knock-back over Olympic Stadium decision

Leyton Orient have stated they are consulting their solicitors as to whether they will appeal against Thursday's rejection by a High Court judge of their bid for a judicial review of the Olympic Stadium decision. The Os were joined in their attempts by Tottenham, who are also considering their next move, after the two clubs were told there were no grounds for a review of the Olympic Park Legacy Company's verdict that West Ham and Newham Council should be the future occupants of the venue.

A club statement on Orient`s official website read: "Further to the decision by the High Court to deny Leyton Orient leave to review the decisions by OPLC and London Borough of Newham, the club will be seeking advice from its solicitors as to whether it will seek an oral hearing in respect of either or both decisions."

The statement continued: "The club continues with its Judicial Review against the Government and arbitration over the Premier League's decision to allow West Ham United to move to the Olympic Stadium without taking into consideration the adverse effect on Leyton Orient.

"The club will be making no further comment on the matter at the moment."
