Girl Scouts of Manitou Council, Inc. v. Girl Scouts of the US of Am., Inc., 08-2488

In seeking to implement its "Wisconsin Realignment Plan," Defendant is enjoined from interfering with the current jurisdiction of a chartered, local council of Girl Scouts, pending final resolution on the merits of the local council's legal challenge. As a "dealer" protected by the Wisconsin Fair Dealership Law, the local council enjoys a statutory presumption that it would be irreparably harmed by Defendant's attempts to unilaterally remove a large portion of its jurisdiction.
