Disneyland Discrimination Lawsuit Set to Face Orange County Jury

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A Black longtime former Disneyland employee who alleges he was subjected to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation and then wrongfully fired earlier this year after being falsely accused of bringing a gun to work will have his case heard by an Orange County jury, a judge ruled.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elaine Lu on Friday granted a motion by attorneys for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S. Inc. and four other Disney entities transferring Douglas Keith Harris’ lawsuit to Orange County. She heard arguments on Nov. 13, then took the case under submission before ruling Friday.

Disney lawyers stated in their court papers that the case was clearly one that should be litigated in Orange County because Disneyland is located in the city of Anaheim.

“(Harris) does not, because he cannot, dispute that he worked in Orange County, that the alleged illegal practice occurred in Orange County, that he would have continued working in Orange County but for the alleged illegal practice, or that the documents relevant to the alleged illegal practice were administered in Orange County and are maintained there,” the Disney lawyers argued in their court papers.
