Winter Park resident counters lawsuit against Gov. Ron DeSantis over Disney’s Reedy Creek in Orlando
Another Orange County resident has joined the lawsuit that’s targeting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the potential tax implications from the eventual termination of Walt Disney World’s (NYSE: DIS) Reedy Creek Improvement District — but this time it’s in support of the dissolution. Winter Park resident James Pickett on May 24 filed a motion to intervene in the case involving Osceola County residents Michael, Leslie and Eduardo Foronda, and Orange County resident Vivian Gonzalez, who filed a lawsuit on May 16 with the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court in Miami-Dade County alleging taxpayer rights violations being caused by DeSantis’ law targeting the dissolution of special districts made prior to 1968.
