Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday brushed off a lawsuit by the Walt Disney Co. over the revocation of its Orlando-area theme park’s self-governing privileges as politically motivated.
“I don’t think the suit has merit. I think it’s political,” DeSantis said during a news conference in Jerusalem as part of a trip his office described as an “international trade mission.”
“I think they filed in Tallahassee for a reason, because they’re trying to generate some district court decision,” the governor said. “But we’re very confident on the law.”
