A case involving the strip search of a 13 year old at school will be heard by the Supreme Court.
Wired PR News – The Supreme Court is set to hear a case involving the strip search of a teenager at school. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the High Court will hear arguments and make a decision as to whether the strip search of 13-year-old Savana Redding by school administrators was unreasonable or justified.
Redding, now 19, was strip-searched based on accusations by a fellow student that she was in possession of prescription strength ibuprofen pills on campus. The school was accused of being in violation of the Fourth Amendment for their actions. A ruling by a federal appeals court gives Redding leeway to sue the Unified School District in Safford, Arizona for the search. The district is appealing the court’s decision.
