In a surprising turn of events, Walt Disney World has issued a lawsuit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District Board of Supervisors he appointed. This move was made in response to what Disney claims to be a “relentless campaign” against the company and its resorts.
According to officials, Disney is suing for “declaratory and injunctive relief.” This means they are seeking a court ruling that would prevent DeSantis and the board from taking any further action against them.
This dispute has been ongoing for some time, with DeSantis allegedly attempting to limit the autonomy of Disney World, the largest employer in the state. In an effort to gain back power, Disney has been maneuvering behind the scenes, quietly taking control from DeSantis' board.
The lawsuit alleges that DeSantis and the board have engaged in a “targeted campaign of government retaliation” against the company, which has caused significant harm to their business. Despite attempts to resolve the issue out of court, Disney has been left with no other option but to take legal action.
This lawsuit has sent shockwaves throughout the state of Florida and the entertainment industry at large. Many are wondering what the future holds for Walt Disney World and how this legal battle will ultimately play out.
