HARRISBURG — Police officers were called to a central Pennsylvania school board meeting when a lawyer attempted to hold a news conference.

The four officers showed up at the Friday afternoon meeting as opposing groups of board members discussed a possible lawsuit, the Patriot-News of Harrisburg reported.

Susquehanna Township school district lawyer Paul Blunt said he had been meeting with school board members concerning an expected lawsuit by other board members against the school district and Superintendent Susan Kegerise.

Attorney Bret Keisling said the school board members he represents were excluded from an executive meeting and that he wanted to hold a news conference to discuss that.

No charges were filed in the incident.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
