Leyton Orient Drops Legal Case Against West Ham's Olympic Stadium Move

League One side Leyton Orient has "dropped a legal battle" against West Ham's move to London's Olympic Stadium and "reached an undisclosed settlement with the Premier League," according to David Kent of the London DAILY MAIL. Orient Chair Barry Hearn "wanted to explore the options of a groundshare and had called for a judicial review into the decision of the London Legacy Development Corporation to appoint their east London rivals as the anchor tenant," set to pay some £2M ($3.4M) a year in rent. However, the Premier League "confirmed in a short statement on Tuesday that Orient, who feared a hit on their attendances at Brisbane Road which borders the Olympic Park site, would now be calling an end to what had been a three-year long battle." The statement read, "Leyton Orient confirms, however, that it no longer disputes the validity of the Premier League's decision to allow West Ham United to occupy the Stadium" (DAILY MAIL, 7/1).
