A federal judge on Tuesday threw out a class-action lawsuit brought by three disabled people upset that Walt Disney World would not allow them to ride personal Segways in its theme parks. But the judge left an opening for a similar suit to be filed against the resort.
In dismissing the original case, U.S. District Court District Judge Gregory Presnell also rejected a proposed settlement Disney had negotiated with the three plaintiffs that had drawn protests from some disability-rights advocates. Under the terms of that settlement, Disney would have been permitted to continue banning the two-wheeled Segways at both Disney World and Disneyland in exchange for deploying its own upright — but four-wheeled — scooters for disabled guests to use, paying the three plaintiffs’ legal fees and giving them $4,000 each for future Disney vacations.
Critics had argued that the proposed settlement would have unfairly bound other disabled people who did not believe Disney’s four-wheeled scooters were an adequate substitute for their own scooters.

The Walt Disney Company has hired one of its star TV executives to overhaul its struggling motion picture studio.
Rich Ross, president of Disney Channels Worldwide, will immediately take over the top job at Walt Disney Studios, according to people who were briefed on the matter but asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media. The studio has had a leadership void since its former chairman, Dick Cook, resigned under pressure on Sept. 18. Disney has no immediate plans to announce a successor for Mr. Ross at Disney Channel.

A Disneyland Resort construction subcontractor this morning was taken to the hospital for back pain after falling into a trench in an employee-only area inside Disneyland, fire officials said.
The man was working on a trench, which was up to 5-feet deep, when he fell in this morning before the park opened, said Maria Sabol, an Anaheim Fire Department spokeswoman.
About 14 firefighters responded to the scene after the call came in about 8:41 a.m. The man was conscious, but complained about back pain. He was taken out on a back board, Sabol said.
The injuries appeared to be minor, said Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman.
Search and rescue officials also responded because they specialize in trench rescues.
The operation took about 45 minutes.
The accident area was near New Orleans Square. Disneyland was ready to open as scheduled at 10 a.m., Brown said.
