This week, Disney reportedly narrowed the focus of its federal lawsuit against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to allege that he retaliated against the company on a political level.

The company amended its lawsuit to remove additional claims, such as that the state violated the company’s contractual rights.

Compared to the original litigation, the amended lawsuit is nearly halved in size due to this amendment.

Disney asserts that it wanted to withdraw the claims because they are the subject of a state-level lawsuit.

Disney indicated in May of this year that it had withdrawn from constructing a $1 billion office complex due to “changing business conditions.”

The company was incensed after the 44-year-old governor stripped it of its control over a special tax district created in the 1960s that gave it access to benefits that no other company in the state had.

Due to the company’s financial difficulties, Disney has already laid off 4,000 employees over the past few months, and more layoffs are expected.
