The Disney-DeSantis feud is heading to the lawyers

May 07, 2023

The year-long feud between Disney and Florida Gov. Last week, Disney sued DeSantis and his handpicked Central Florida Tourism Oversight District for allegedly violating the company’s free speech rights. The opposing lawsuits now appear poised to wind their way through both state and federal court at the same time. “The state case is just saying that these few acts that the outgoing board took were inappropriate, and asks to have those overturned,” Tobias said. After the measure was passed by the legislature and signed by DeSantis, Walker sided with civil rights groups who sued to block it.
