A federal judge handed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis a major legal victory against his woke corporate nemesis Disney on Tuesday.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis recorded yet another win on Tuesday, as a judge threw out a lawsuit challenging the governor’s law that revoked special privileges enjoyed by Disney World.
DeSantis had signed State Bill 4-C, on April 22. which required Disney to obey building inspections and planning and zoning controls under Osceola and Orange counties. The bill will go into effect in July 2022.
The complaint dismissed by U.S. District Court Judge Cecilia Altonaga originated from three residents of Orange and Osceola counties who claimed S.B. 4-C unconstitutionally threatened residents with higher taxes and abridged free speech rights, Fox Business noted.
The plaintiffs “do not plausibly allege they have suffered any concrete injury as a result of the alleged violation of Disney’s First Amendment rights, and nothing in the Complaint shows Plaintiffs have a close relationship with Disney,” Altonaga wrote, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
DeSantis’s move against Disney marks one of the very first instances of a conservative Governor holding a major corporation accountable for their ultra woke policies.
