So, does this bitch slap Disney? Does the fired security guard get his job back with a bunch of punitive damages?

Whats most amazing to me is that so many cases go all the way to the state or federal supreme courts. As long as the pockets are deep you just keep going to a higher court.

Our judicial system is screwed but the one shining aspect of this ruling is the judge didn’t make his own law.

Florida isn’t a “right to work” state, so a company can fire you for any reason and you have no recourse unless you can prove your firing violated Federal laws - Such as discrimination due to Race, Age, Gender, etc.

No, the Florida law had some kind of specific loophole for Disney and other amusement parks.

I read in another article that the Florida law excludes some work locations including those that keep explosives on premises. Disney argues that since they have a fireworks display every night, fireworks are a type of explosive, therefore, Disney is exempt under Florida law. Well, anyway, that’s their argument.
