Orlando judge tosses Disney IT outsourcing lawsuit

Walt Disney World and two outsourcing contractors have won dismissal of lawsuits filed by former IT workers.

The lawsuits, filed in January, alleged that the Disney employees were the victim of a racketeering scheme to terminate them and replace them with immigrant, outsourced workers through the federal H-1B Visa program. Adding insult to injury, the workers were also forced to train their replacements or they would lose severance benefits.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell ordered the suits dismissed Thursday.

Presnell ruled that the former Disney employees, Leo Perrero and Dena Moore, were off-base in their accusations that Disney and outsourcing firms HCL Inc. and Cognizant Technologies made false statements on certifications for the Visa program.
