DeSantis in January prevailed in a court battle brought by the Walt Disney Company, a federal judge granting the state’s motion to dismiss a free speech lawsuit accusing the governor of retaliation over the company’s criticism of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law after he signed a bill transferring control of Disney’s long-standing special taxing district — formerly known as the Reedy Creek Improvement District — to a state-appointed board.

U.S. District Judge Allen Winsor ruled Disney did not have standing to sue the governor and can’t challenge a facially constitutional action by claiming such a motive. Disney appealed the decision the next day.
