AG Moody Responds to Former Disney Board

After the former Disney district board tells AG Ashley Moody’s office that no records could be found pertaining to a public records request, Moody’s Chief Deputy threatens litigation saying the board’s response “strains all credulity.”

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Today, Attorney General Ashley Moody’s Chief Deputy, John Guard, responded to the former Reedy Creek Board of Supervisors after they declined to answer a public records request for information related to a “highly unusual” agreement signed on February 8 with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S., Inc. (Disney).

In the letter, Guard tells District Administrator John Classe “the context of the Demand was known by you and all others at the District who were involved in responding to the Demand. Your Response that no documents exist strains all credulity. It is patently false. It was clearly not made in good faith.”

The Attorney General’s office said they will file lawsuits to compel the District to produce the requested information if records are not produced on or before April 24, 2023. Governor DeSantis is holding a press conference at 12:45 pm at the Reedy Creek Administration Building in Lake Buena Vista. DeSantis is expected to announce additional action against Disney for agreements the previous board attempted to shove through at the 11th hour.
