And here's an Orient fan's (and basically the Leyton Orient Fans' Trust) perspective on all this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/football-league-blog

Hearn is clearly after some compo. Couple that with him (and not LOFC) owning the Brisbane Rd ground and no doubt wanting to redevelop it for profit at some point and you start to understand his "negotiating tactics". If he can find an affordable new home for Orient and make some money for himself then he'll sleep easy.
