Gwinnett Judge Dismisses Case Against Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia, Feb. 6, 2012 -- Judge Joseph C. Iannozzone, State Court of Gwinnett County, dismissed the lawsuit filed by Angela Johnson. Mrs. Johnson filed the case in 2011 in her individual capacity and on behalf of her minor daughters alleging intention infliction of emotional distress.
“We have always believed that this was an unfortunate disagreement that arose between well-intentioned moms in one of our troops.” said Marilyn Midyette, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta. “When Mrs. Johnson brought her concerns to our attention, we promptly looked into the situation and concluded that this was a matter of miscommunication and hurt feelings between mothers interested in the best for the girls for whom they care.”
She added that Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta works with nearly 42,000 girls and approximately 18,000 volunteers each year, many of whom are mothers – so we understand the deep sense of pride and protection mothers such as Mrs. Johnson feel for their daughters.
