Leyton Orient Football Club judicial review application in relation to Olympic Stadium fails


Leyton Orient Football Club has failed in three applications before the High Court. Mr Justice Lewis, sitting in the Administrative Court, rejected its applications for: (i) permission to apply for judicial review of the decision by the London Legacy Development Corporation not to take Leyton's bid further, (ii) permission to amend its Statement of Facts and Grounds so as to include an alternative case on financial viability and (iii) for specific disclosure. The judge held that none of the applications was arguable, and refused permission to appeal.

Richard Gordon QC and Andrew Henshaw QC appeared for the London Legacy Development Corporation, instructed by Allen & Overy.
