Supreme Court faults strip search

Posted By on Thu, Jun 25, 2009 at 11:45 AM

I'd mentioned this outrageous case previously. Today, the Supreme Court said Arizona schools officials went too far in strip-searching a 13-year-old girl in a search for prescription-strength over-the-counter pills. The vote was 8-1. The metaphorical pubic hair on the Coke can of this otherwise unanimous opinion was, well, you know who.

By a 7-2 vote -- Stevens and Ginsburg dissenting -- the court held individual school officials should not be liable for the outrage, only the school district.
