    [h1]Disney seeks to narrow the scope of its lawsuit against DeSantis to free speech claim[/h1]

    Disney wants to narrow the scope of its [link=]federal lawsuit[/link] against Gov. Ron DeSantis to just a free speech claim that the Florida governor retaliated against the company because of its public opposition to a state law banning classroom lessons on sexual orientation and gender identity in early grades.
    Disney on Friday asked a federal judge for permission to file an amended complaint focusing just on the First Amendment claim and leaving to [link=]another, state-court lawsuit[/link] questions about the legality of agreements the company signed with Disney Worlds governing district, then-made up of Disney supporters. The agreements were signed before DeSantis and the GOP-controlled Florida Legislature took over the governmental body in the spring.

    Disney faces concrete, imminent, and ongoing injury as a result of CFTODs new powers and composition, which are being used to punish Disney for expressing a political view, said Disneys federal court motion.
