Desantis Administration to face a lawsuit over the handling of African American history course

Here is more on the Desantis vs Disney Lawsuit.

He claims immunity because he doesn't enforce laws. But he oversees and is responsible for those who do. He appointed them, and they do what he says. The puppeteer is responsible for what the puppet says and does.
 

Desantis continues going after Disney.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday said that Disney CEO Bob Iger should drop his company’s lawsuit accusing the Republican governor of political retaliation.

“They’re suing the state of Florida. They’re going to lose that lawsuit,” DeSantis said in an interview with CNBC’s “Last Call” set to air in full at 7 p.m. ET.




“So what I would say is, drop the lawsuit,” the governor said when asked what he would tell Iger if he were to give him a call today.

“This is a great place to do business,” DeSantis said, citing Florida’s status as the top state economy in CNBC’s latest national survey. The Sunshine State scored eighth overall in CNBC’s ranking of America’s Top States for Business in 2023.

“Your competitors all do very well here, Universal, SeaWorld. They have not had the same special privileges as you have,” DeSantis said he’d tell Iger.
 
The Florida board overseeing Disney World ends diversity programs, saying they are "illegal and un-American."


However, the fact is they're neither illegal nor un-American. There is 60 years of law supporting DEI including a recent executive order.

It all begins with the Declaration of Independence, that stated "all men are created equal."
 

Here is an update November 30th is the Debate Between Desantis vs. Newsom. I knew something has been up for some time but the details had to be verified.

Desantis continues his political attacks on Disney. All of this rants Desantis keeps doing was all about luring in California Governor Newsom in the debates and what Desantis means by "Woke Ideology" by Disney. In the event Desantis becomes president I can see him float the idea of going after ABC News and the license of the ABC O&O's like KABC-TV basically in the same form as Trump tried to go after Comcast and it lead to nowhere.

Responding to the latest amended complaint from the Bob Iger-run Disney, lawyers for DeSantis this week asserted that DeSantis and the secretary of Florida’s Department of Commerce don’t “enforce any of the laws at issue, so Disney lacks standing to sue them.”

Or, to cut through the legal-eze and go straight to populist soundbite decrying the now-First Amendment-focused action, DeSantis says the real point of the suit isn’t freedom of speech. Instead, he claims it’s a “last-ditch effort” by Disney “to reinstate its corporate kingdom” in the Sunshine State.
Read DeSantis’ response to Disney’s 2nd amended complaint filed Thursday.

Echoing a filing Thursday by defendants from the February-appointed Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, Florida’s Attorney General once again is angling for DeSantis to get the “meritless” matter dismissed. Failing that, they want the courts to “at minimum, dismiss all claims against the State Defendants.”

Contacted by Deadline today, the Disney had no comment on this fresh jab in the bare-knuckles legal brawl between themselves and MAGA-man DeSantis.
 

Here is more on Disney's lawsuit against the Desantis Administration.
 
FYI The judge is a Trump appointee. No big surprise. It will be appealed to a more impartial court.

Here is Disney named in another lawsuit this time Gina Carano plays the same stuff seen in the Desantis lawsuit. Only this time she is alleging that Disney discriminates against conservatives if this is true.

Actor Gina Carano on Tuesday sued Lucasfilm and its parent The Walt Disney Co. over her 2021 firing from “ The Mandalorian,” saying she was let go for expressing right-wing views on social media.

The lawsuit Carano filed with help from X, formerly Twitter, in federal court in California alleges her wrongful termination from the “ Star Wars ” galaxy Disney+ streaming series after two seasons over a post likening the treatment of American conservatives to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany.

“A short time ago in a galaxy not so far away, Defendants made it clear that only one orthodoxy in thought, speech, or action was acceptable in their empire, and that those who dared to question or failed to fully comply would not be tolerated,” the lawsuit opens. “Carano was terminated from her role as swiftly as her character’s peaceful home planet of Alderaan had been destroyed by the Death Star.”


Yes Elon Musk inserted himself in the Gina Carano vs Disney Lawsuit.

The implications in this lawsuit could affect how the Desantis lawsuit is going to play out. This is given that this is the second example that Disney is tied to a lawsuit where the opposition in court is a Republican.


 
Gina Carano appears on Fox News to talk about her lawsuit against Disney.

All companies have policies against posting controversial opinions on social media that can in any way harm that company.

So yes it can happen to anyone who ignores the employee handbooks that cover these items. They all sign and agree to them as terms of employment. Just as people sign terms is use when they join twitter.

True in Gina Carano's case she made a series of pro Trump type rants related to the 2020 elections and antisemitic rants that got her removed from Disney. But the way her lawsuit is going it's all about her legal team playing the same tactics State of Florida did when they sued Disney.
