Today the Supreme Court ruled that a school’s strip search of then-13-year-old Arizona teen, Savana Redding, was unconstitutional.  The strip search for painkillers violated the girl’s constitutional rights, despite the school district’s zero-tolerance policy for drugs.

Apparently Redding had been summoned from her middle school classroom and was asked to strip down to her underwear so school officials could search for prescription strength ibuprofen.

The ruling could redefine student privacy rights and set new parameters for school officials seeking out dangerous contraband such as drugs, weapons or alcohol.

Date:  May 26
