HAZELWOOD — The Girl Scout Cookies fight in eastern Missouri is going to court.
A Hazelwood family is suing the city after it warned two teenage girls that their Girl Scout Cookies stand in the family's driveway without a permit violated a city code.
Carolyn Milles filed the lawsuit Thursday on behalf of her two daughters. She received a letter from the city last month saying that a neighbor had complained about traffic and noise from the stand. The girls had sold cookies from the stand for the past six years.
The city did not tell the family to close the stand.
Their lawyer, Dave Roland, said the lawsuit is not seeking money. He said it's designed to protect private property rights for "harmless" uses such as cookie sales.
