Disney’s lawsuit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been dealt a significant blow and has led to the leftist “woke” company scurrying away for now as a federal judge, Allen Winsor, dismissed the case.

The judge, appointed by former President Donald J. Trump, ruled that Disney lacked standing to bring the suit, which alleged retaliation by the governor over a special taxing district takeover following Disney’s criticism of a parental rights bill.

Winsor said that Disney’s claims of injury were deemed “in the past,” and the company failed to demonstrate damages from specific actions taken by the new board due to the governor’s alleged control.

In his ruling, the judge wrote, “It is settled law that ‘when a statute is facially constitutional, a plaintiff cannot bring a free-speech challenge by claiming that the lawmakers who passed it acted with a constitutionally impermissible purpose.”

Why did the lawsuit happen?

The legal dispute arose when DeSantis-backed Republican state lawmakers moved to revoke Disney’s special privilege for the Reedy Creek Improvement District, renamed the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, with the governor gaining authority to select the board. In response, Disney pursued legal action against the governor.

Governor DeSantis’s office celebrated the ruling, asserting that it marked the end of Disney’s attempts to control its own government and receive preferential treatment.

The fight against the “Don’t Say Gay” governor results in a big zero for the mouse company.

Disney’s was upset with the non-rodent, DeSantis, especially after the governor vigorously responded to the company’s opposition to what the leftists called the “Don’t Say Gay” bill addressing parental concerns about the sexualization of young children in classrooms.

In a move that appeared that they were sticking up for the sexualization of young children in classrooms, the Disney Company had tweeted after the bill passed, “Florida’s HB 1557, also known as the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill should never have passed and should never have been signed into law. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family, as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and across the country.”

What about standing up for kids? Isn’t Disney an entertainment company for kids?

Mickey Mouse plans to appeal.

Despite the setback in their lawsuit, Disney expressed its determination to appeal the ruling, emphasizing the case’s broader implications for the rule of law. The company warned against setting a precedent that could allow states to misuse their official powers to penalize political viewpoints they disagree with.

Apparently, they don’t know any Democrats. That is ALL they do.

What about all of the perverts who might be working for Disney?

Disney, however, should be spending their time doing better background checks on their employees instead of getting involved in partisan politics to begin with. They seem to be in the news all the time with one pervert employee after another getting arrested whether it’s human trafficking, pornography or something else.

And while Disney scrambles to find a new piece of cheese to gnaw on, the governor’s press secretary, Jeremy Redfern, declared about the recent ruling, “The days of Disney controlling its own government and being placed above the law are long gone.”
