Hazelwood, MO (KSDK) - A pair of Girl Scouts has lost its appeal to overturn a ban on selling cookies from the driveway of their Hazelwood home.

Sisters Caitlin and Abigail Mills, 16 and 14 years of age, had been selling Girl Scout cookies out if their driveway for the last six years. In April, the family received a letter from the City of Hazelwood, informing them they were in violation of the occupancy code, and the two young girls were forced to shut down their stand.

Hazelwood cut off the sales after neighbors complained about too many people on their street.

The Freedom Center of Missouri filed the lawsuit on the girls' behalf, claiming this was a Constitutional issue. Hazelwood's attorneys told the judge the Mills family needed a permit for the cookie stand.
