Federal Judge Presiding Over Disney’s Lawsuit Against Gov. DeSantis Recuses Himself

The Florida federal judge presiding over Disney’s lawsuit against Gov. Ron DeSantis has recused himself due to a conflict of interest.
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S., Inc., filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida on Wednesday, accusing DeSantis of orchestrating a “targeted campaign of government retaliation,” which would violate the company’s free speech rights.
Disney filed the lawsuit after the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, which houses Walt Disney World Resort, voted to invalidate two development contracts that Disney signed in February.
