Lake Buena Vista, FL – The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District, today, accepted Disney’s proposal to allow Disney to backtrack on key claims in their federal case. Last week, Disney asked the court to remove these key claims from their lawsuit. The judge denied their motion without prejudice because Disney’s lawyers did not follow legal procedure and forgot to ask the district’s permission to proceed.
After accepting Disney’s proposal, district spokesman Alexei Woltornist released the following statement:
We are pleased that Disney backtracked on these legal claims against the district in their federal case. Disney’s latest legal move puts them in line with the position of what the district has been advocating for months now: that these matters should be decided in state court. We hope this helps expedite justice for the people of Florida.
