Today Disney filed a lawsuit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis that alleges he is undertaking a political effort to harm its business, according to CNBC.
This lawsuit comes after a long fight between the governor and Disney has heated up recently. Disney injected itself into an argument about some bills passed by Flordia. The Governor responded by taking over the local government that manages the land around Walt Disney World.
Now Disney says the governor is using his post to undertake a relentless campaign to weaponize government power.
Earlier today, the new oversight board declared the company’s contracts null in an attempt to undo efforts by Disney to retain control over the land around Walt Disney World. This seems to be one of the last straws, as now Disney is seeing the governor over all of this.
It looks like the fight between Disney and the State of Florida is just getting started. We will have full coverage of this and how it will affect Disney including its streaming services as we learn more.
