RELATED: Ron DeSantis dismisses Disney's 'political' lawsuit as feud continues

Disney says in a new lawsuit that Gov. Ron DeSantis led a "targeted campaign of government retaliation" against the company, the latest chapter in a remarkable clash between the governor and the state's most iconic company.

Disney's lawsuit filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for north Florida accuses DeSantis of threatening the company's business and violating its constitutional rights, calling the government's actions "patently retaliatory, patently anti-business, and patently unconstitutional."

"But the Governor and his allies have made clear they do not care and will not stop." the lawsuit reads, adding that legal action is necessary to protect against a "relentless effort to weaponize government power against Disney in retaliation for expressing a political viewpoint unpopular with certain State officials."
