Ron DeSantis Asks Judge to Dismiss Reedy Creek Improvement District Lawsuit, Notes Dissolution Might Not Happen

    According to a report from the Orlando Business Journal, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and other interested parties have asked a judge to dismiss a lawsuit over the dissolution of the Reedy Creek Improvement District.

    Back in May, a lawsuit was brought against DeSantis and others over their plans to dismantle the Reedy Creek Improvement District. A week later, a judge dismissed that lawsuit.

    By the end of May, the lawsuit was refiled and has been active ever since. Now, DeSantis and other interested parties are asking that a judge dismisses the refiled lawsuit. Their argument, in part, reads “Plaintiffs have no legal right to prohibit the State of Florida from dissolving governmental entities created by state law. Yet Plaintiffs’ premature, scattershot complaint attempts to do just that”.

    Interestingly, the motion from DeSantis also seems to indicate that a dissolution of the Reedy Creek Improvement District may not even happen. Here’s the interesting part of their argument (emphasis added), “…complaint utterly fails to identify sufficient ultimate facts showing how the potential dissolution of the Reedy Creek Improvement District pursuant to state law — assuming such dissolution were to occur — could plausibly infringe on their rights as taxpayers.”

    There is still quite a bit of time between now and the June 2023 timeframe for the planned dismantling of the Reedy Creek Improvement District.
