Supreme Court, Teenager, Strip Search

The Supreme Court decided today in the case of Redding v Safford Middle School. The strip search performed at the Safford, Arizona school of a Savana Redding accused of having prescription-strength ibuprofen was in fact illegal. We had first posted about this story back in March and there are more details in that post. Today the Supreme Court ruled on that school officials Assistant principal Kerry Wilson, Peggy Schwallier, the school nurse, and Helen Romero, a secretary violated the law with their strip search of the 13-year-old Safford Middle School. They ordered her to remove her clothes and shake out her underwear because they were looking for prescription strength ibuprofen pills she had brought to school. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in San Francisco, also ruled that school officials had violated the Fourth Amendment’s ban on unreasonable searches.
