CORRECTION – Regarding a Nov. 25 article, William Baer was charged with three counts of disorderly conduct after his appearance at a May 6, 2014, meeting of the Gilford School Board. He was never charged with resisting arrest and the case was dismissed under First Amendment grounds by 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division Judge Jim Carroll. In addition, the judge wrote that, "because Leach at least arguably had probable cause (for an arrest) under (state law) he is entitled to qualified immunity. Based on qualified immunity, Leach is entitled to summary judgment of Baer's false arrest claim."
