CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) – While other kids are spending their summer vacation at the pool or playing Xbox, 14-year-old Abigail Mills is spending at least part of hers in a St. Louis County Courtroom.
She and her 16-year-old sister Caitlin sued the city of Hazelwood after they were told they could no longer sell Girl Scout cookies from their driveway this spring, as they’d done in years past.
“We’ve sold a thousand boxes each every year,” Caitlin said following a brief court hearing in Clayton Thursday morning. “That’s a big number for our troop and it helps, like, field trips and stuff.”
Thursday’s hearing was supposed to be on a motion filed by the city of Hazelwood to have the challenge to their ordinance prohibiting such sales thrown out of court.
A judge who’d been on vacation decided to further review the case and could issue a ruling in a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, 14-year-old Caitlin Mills says they haven’t wasted a single second thinking about just dropping the whole thing and agreeing not to sell cookies in front of their home.
“It’s not like we’re selling drugs out there or anything, it’s cookies!,” she said. “People love these things.”
