An alternative explanation may be that whatever event caused the
temporal lobe atrophy initially mave have also caused swelling. The
swelling could have caused the brainstem to be pushed into the sharp
tentorial edge on the opposite side. This could have caused
scarring/gliosis in the cerbral crus on the edge that is against the
tentorium. The scarring could account for ipsilateral weakness of the
legs.
