Girl Scouts tell NC mom to sell cookies or face lawsuit
ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C. — A Girl Scout troop in Roanoke Rapids told a woman that if she couldn’t sell her daughter’s cookies then she may face a lawsuit.
According to WNCT, 8-year-old Reagan Phillips decided to quit Girl Scouts because she said she was being teased by other girls.
After she quit, her mom tried to return 288 boxes of cookies they promised to sell.
But the local cookie sales coordinator told her she had to cover the cost of the cookies or face a lawsuit.
A spokesperson for the Girl Scouts told WNCT they always try to help troops account for extra cookies, but someone has to be held accountable.
