DeSantis Moves To Disqualify Judge On Disney Case

Governor Ron DeSantis has requested the disqualification of a federal judge from the First Amendment lawsuit brought by Disney against him and his appointees. The governor’s attorney filed a motion in federal court in Tallahassee, claiming that Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker’s prior statements in unrelated cases have raised doubts about his impartiality regarding the state’s efforts to take control of Disney World’s governing body.
