Spurs return to High Court for the Olympic Stadium row continues in court

Tottenham have returned to the High Court to continue their bid for a judicial review of the decision to award the Olympic Stadium to West Ham and Spurs are refusing to accept defeat after last week's decision by Judge Mr Justice Davis to reject their bid and that of League One side Leyton Orient.

The North Londoners will now have the chance to make a case in an oral hearing at the High Court and the statement on the club's official website said: "The club has applied to the High Court to renew its application for permission to bring a claim against the London Borough of Newham and the Olympic Park Legacy Company and the Mayor of London and Government Ministers for judicial review of their decisions underlying the bid process for the conversion of the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games.

"Under this process the club now has the opportunity to present its case at an oral hearing at the High Court." and the Hammers won the backing of Olympic bosses in the battle for the 2012 venue back in February for a Olympic Park Legacy Company executives decided their offer and intention to retain the athletics track was better than Tottenham's rival bid.
