Disney Lawsuit Against Ron DeSantis Takes a Wild Turn

US District Judge Allen Winsor in Tallahassee rejected the complaint because Disney lacked standing to sue Governor DeSantis and his appointees for First Amendment violations. The judge argued that plaintiffs cannot challenge constitutional legislation on free-speech grounds if they believe lawmakers had unlawful objectives.

The court case centers on Governor DeSantis’ 2022 bill banning early grade school discussions on sexual orientation and gender identity. Disney has controlled the municipal service district for nearly 50 years. Disney sued after DeSantis’ appointees gained authority in recent legislative reforms.

Disney lawsuit against Ron DeSantis plans to pursue in state court despite the federal loss. The corporation believes the issue implicates the rule of law and that letting it stand might establish a dangerous precedent, allowing states to punish political views they disagree with.
