ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Disney won’t be getting a reprieve in its fight with Gov. Ron DeSantis
Late Friday afternoon, an Orange County judge ruled the state case between Disney and the new Central Florida Tourism Oversight District will continue.
Disney asked the judge to put the state case on hold while it litigates its case against the district and DeSantis in federal court.
However, the judge ruled that a “stay” would not be proper, writing, “It could take years for Disney’s case to complete its course through the federal trial and appellate courts.”
Disney sued the state in federal court when the Governor and Lawmakers targeted the company last year. In response, the state sued Disney in state court; now both cases will proceed.
