New York Man Who Refused To Move During Disney Parade Drops Lawsuit
Here’s an interesting piece in the Orlando Sentinel this morning! Marc Rubin, from New York has voluntarily dismissed a lawsuit he filed back in 2018. He decided to sue Disney for false imprisonment after he was arrested for attacking a Disney employee who asked him to move aside during a Magic Kingdom parade.
According to the Sentinel, court records don’t indicate whether or not a settlement with the Walt Disney Company was reached. Rubin said in the filing that he was planning on proposing to his fiance the night of the incident but was instead arrested.
The details of his lawsuit claim that Rubin was detained “unlawfully” by Disney security and wrongly accused of battery during the events which transpired in 2015. An incident report filed by the Orange County Sheriff’s office said that a Magic Kingdom Cast Member asked Rubin to step back to make way for the oncoming parade. Rubin responded by screaming, grabbing and threatening the cast member.
Rubin maintains his innocence in the lawsuit claiming he did not touch the cast member. He also argued that if he moved away from the area as instructed he would’ve become separated from his family.
As of going to neither Disney nor Rubin’s lawyer have yet to comment. At the time that the suit was filed (back in 2018), the story quickly went viral and was picked up at news networks around the country as well as the British tabloids.
For now, it looks like this issue is case closed. However, we’ll continue to follow the story here at MickeyBlog and will keep you updated!
