Susquehanna board members drop lawsuit against superintendent

Posted: Updated:

Two members of the Susquehanna Township School Board have dropped their lawsuit against district superintendent Susan Kegerise.

Jesse Rawls Sr. and Mark Sussman said in a statement that they have instructed their attorney to immediately cease all legal action against Kegerise.

Rawls and Sussman said they are confident the courts would have found in their favor, but they said the reasons for filing their lawsuit have been corrected as the result of community and media interest in the case and recent events.

"Our community is now aware of the intimidating tactics used by Dr. Kegerise's attorney, Jason Kutulakis, in an attempt to prevent district residents and taxpayers from communicating with their elected school board directors," Rawls and Sussman said in the statement.

"These same residents and taxpayers have taken a renewed interest in how Susquehanna Township School District is governed. Further, board directors' email addresses will soon be posted on our district's website so all community members can communicate directly and unhindered with their elected representatives."

"Finally, as a practical matter, the cessation of all related legal actions eliminates the need for the unnecessary and exorbitant legal fees being paid by district taxpayers."
