    Top court rules strip search of teen was illegal

    I think this is fantastic news!

    WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a school's strip search of an Arizona teenage girl accused of having prescription-strength ibuprofen was illegal.

    The court ruled that school officials violated the law with their search of Savana Redding, who lives in Safford in rural eastern Arizona.

    Redding was 13 when officials at Safford Middle School in 2003 ordered her to remove her clothes and shake out her underwear because they were looking for pills. The district bans prescription and over-the-counter drugs and the school was acting on a tip from another student.

    I hope the lower court holds the school liable. I really do.

    I was curious how the ruling went. 8-1 with Thomas dissenting.

    The district bans prescription and over-the-counter drugs and the school was acting on a tip from another student.
    How can they ban a prescription drug?

    No tolerance rules.

    Yup, it's also why zero tolerance rules are BS.

    Technically speaking, if it is prescribed to the student by a licensed physician, they are not allowed to ban it.

    The student's medical treatment trumps that tard rule from a tard school.

    With this most excellent ruling from the supreme court I would be willing to bet that the school district is going to pay out the ass for what the did to that child.

    You haven't been involved in the public school system in a while have you?

    Because, their medical conditions do not trump the school. Their medications have to in most cases be given to the school nurse to "hold onto", and are administered / given to the student by the nurse.. in accordance with their "permission" from the administration of the school.

    SCOTUS was just upset there were no pics or video.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
