Ninth Circuit Reinstates Strip Search Case

In a shocking display of common sense the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated a lawsuit challenging a school's strip search of a 13-year-old girl, with no prior disciplinary history, based on teh allegation that she gave a classmate an ibuprofen.

The opinion of the 11 judge panel is here.

The ludicrous opinion of the original three judge panel, which said that the search did not violate the girl's rights, is here.
