Lawyers representing the Girl Scouts accused the Boy Scouts of “infringement” after they say parents accidentally signed their daughters up for the Boy Scouts.
The Boy Scouts responded by saying that the Girl Scouts were starting a “ground war,” BBC reported.
The Board of Directors for the Boy Scouts voted unanimously in October 2017 to begin accepting girls into the group.
In 2018, the Boy Scouts stopped using the word “boy” in their recruitment programs and began accepting girls. The group renamed itself “Scouts BSA.” The move prompted a trademark infringement lawsuit from the Girl Scouts in November 2018, which accused the move by the Boy Scouts of being “uniquely damaging” to them.
