Two girls from Lynn English High School who were involved in a fight that was recorded and uploaded to YouTube have been summoned to court, Carrie Kimball-Monahan, spokeswoman for the Essex district attorney’s office said in an e-mail. Members of the Lynn School Committee had called for disciplinary action for students who participated in, watched, or recorded the fight between the girls at the Cook Street Playground.
