Karon Mitchell dropped her lawsuit filed against the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (MBACC) this week without prejudice.

The lawsuit claimed MBACC used “insider”, crony companies to purchase advertising. Those advertising purchases were paid using tax payer funded dollars. Mitchell dropped the lawsuit without prejudice, meaning she can re-file the suit at any time.

Said Mitchell, “My main issue in filing the suit was the fact that the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber did not put their tax funded advertising contracts out for bids. Last year, MBACC hired a new C.E.O. who has an outstanding marketing background. She promised the community she would bring a professional approach to the manner in which she operates. As such I have decided to drop the lawsuit at this time and give her an opportunity to bring the changes necessary.

Henrietta Golding, of the former McNair Law Firm, represents MBACC.

Mitchell is also involved in a separate legal filing, suing both Golding and McNair.

In that suit, Mitchell claims Golding cheated a bank and Mitchell’s family-owned company, as a client. Read about that complaint here:
