CHARLESTON – Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council, Inc., is suing six women it claims failed to pay for Girl Scout cookies and other products it provided to them.

In January, Melissa Brode, Lindsey Long, Stephanie Peraldo, Melissa Cochran, Francine Gordon and Betty Ross entered into agreements with the Girl Scouts in which they agreed to be Troop Cookie Chairs and agreed to be responsible for and pay for Girl Scout cookies and other products provided by the plaintiff, according to six suits filed Dec. 26 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Girl Scouts claims the defendants further agreed to make payment for the products provided by the plaintiff and the plaintiff’s place of business in Charleston, and the plaintiff delivered Girl Scout cookies and other products to the defendants.

The defendants have materially breached and defaulted upon the agreements by refusing to make payment for the Girl Scout cookies and other products delivered and owe Girl Scouts the total sum of $25,998.90, according to the suits.

Girl Scouts is seeking judgment in the amount of $25,998.90 with interest. It is being represented by David S. Hughart and Christopher J. Winton.

The cases have been assigned to Circuit Judges Carrie Webster, Louis H. Bloom, Paul Zakaib Jr. and Tod J. Kaufman.

Kanawha Circuit Court case numbers: 12-C-2544, 12-C-2545, 12-C-2546, 12-C-2549, 12-C-2551, 12-C-2552
