A decade-old ad soliciting parade performers for Disneyland Paris was recently the cause for a court case that claimed the Euro Disney group practiced discriminatory hiring when the ad specifically asked for applicants with European citizenship. Now Disney has been acquitted of those charges.

According to ABC News, the company faced $250,000 in fines for the ad that SOS-Racisme claimed intentionally excluded applicants from Africa and Turkey. In response, Euro Disney said that, while the wording was “clumsy,” it was not intended to be discriminatory.

In a statement, Euro Disney said the decision was “in line with our ongoing commitment to diversity.” SOS-Racisme is said to be considering an appeal of the ruling.
