If you have been following along with the ongoing legal battle that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Disney have been locked in as of late, then it needs little explanation. Disney, DeSantis, and the DeSantis-appointed Central Florida Tourism Oversight District (CFTOD) are engaged in a Federal Lawsuit as well as a lawsuit in the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida and a countersuit.

Now Judge Margaret H. Schreiber has made a new ruling in the case that the DeSantis-appointed CFTOD filed against Disney in the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida. The intent of the lawsuit is to nullify agreements between the former Reedy Creek Tourism District and Disney. The agreement essentially transferred power from the Reedy Creek Tourism District to Disney prior to the district being dissolved.

Previously, Judge Schreiber denied Disney’s Motion to Dismiss the suit altogether. However, for the moment, things might just be looking up for Disney.

Disney filed a Motion for Continuance to have the date of the hearing scheduled for this December pushed into 2024. Disney essentially made this move because the CFTOD failed to comply with the deadlines set forth for discovery. What’s more, the documents that the CFTOD eventually produced did not satisfy the request.

The judge agreed with Disney this time. Therefore, she ruled in Disney’s favor and granted the Motion for Continuance.

Now a new hearing has been set. As it stands, the hearing will not be held until March 12, 2024. Of course, that is assuming the CTFOD complies with discovery in the meantime.

The Judge ruled in favor of Disney’s motion and moved the hearing to March 12, 2024.

Disney should not interfere with Florida laws. We did not elect them to represent us.

Did you elect DeSantis to break the constitution and trample all over Florida business's first amendment rights? Cause that's what he's doing. We didn't ratify the constitution so some numbnut from Florida, not elected to any sort of national office can tear apart constitutional rights for all of us. DeSantis should stay away from our national laws; we never elected him to do that, And frankly, I'd rather have Disney in charge over DeSantis; DeSantis cares about no one and nothing except his own political ambitions. Who wears lifts in cowboy boots anyway?

The whole point of the original Reedy Creek District was so Disney would take the financial burden off the shoulders of the taxpayers and have autonomy on maintenance. The Disney properties and services are always maintained, pristine and reliable. Since DeSantis pulled the district and put it under his puppet board the deterioration has already begun. Incompetent, unreliable and managing to diss its own employees.
