Los Angeles police commissioners on Tuesday delayed their discussion of proposed rules for people who attend their public meetings, saying the city attorney's office recommended they be further reviewed.

The commission's executive director, Richard Tefank, cited a letter the board received Monday morning from the American Civil Liberties Union, which outlined its concerns over the proposed rules and cited several cases backing free speech at public meetings.
