The news came shortly after the board passed a resolution invalidating Disney's last-minute agreement that allowed it to retain control of the company's long-held special tax zone.
Disney said in a complaint obtained by Yahoo Finance that the government's actions are "clearly retaliatory, clearly anti-corporate and clearly unconstitutional."
Disney is asking the district court to intervene, order the contract to stand and declare DeSantis' action constitutionally illegal and unenforceable.
Disney is asking DeSantis to block a court order preventing him from implementing Senate Bill 4C and House Bill 9B, which would dissolve all special tax districts established before November 1968.
