Grassroots scouting group seeks judgment over Girl Scouts camp decision

By Gary Lloyd

A week after the CEO of the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama resigned, a grassroots group is heading back to court to determine whether the council violated bylaws and misrepresented its actions in court, according to Weld for Birmingham.

The grassroots group that fought to keep Camp Coleman is now in control of the scout council, following an election that ousted some members who favored closing the camp, and the resulting resignation of others, according to Weld.

One issue is whether the previous council conducted business according to scout bylaws. That was the subject of a petition for declaratory judgment against the council brought by Karen Carroll, leader of the grassroots group formerly named the Friends of Camp Coleman. Her attorney, William Bradford, filed a new motion revisiting the petition on Nov. 5 with Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Don Blankenship.
