The battle between DeSantis and Disney began last year,
revolving around Florida legislation that limits
classroom discussion of sexual orientation and gender.
Disney spoke out against the so-called "Don't Say Gay"
bill, and shortly after, DeSantis targeted the special
tax district that Disney has enjoyed since the 1960s.

According to Disney, the cancellation of a development
deal by a hand-picked board DeSantis appointed to
oversee the Orlando park "was patently retaliatory.".
Disney also reportedly called the move "patently
anti-business and patently unconstitutional.".
Disney claims that the now-canceled development
contract "laid the foundation for billions of Disney's
investment dollars and thousands of jobs.".
The same DeSantis-approved board voted to ban
Disney's Orlando-area parks from imposing
COVID-related restrictions in the future.
Disney's civil complaint is looking for the court
to rule that the decisions made by the board
were both unlawful and unenforceable
