supreme-court-ws.jpgThe Supreme Court ruled against Arizona school officials saying they violated the constitutional rights of a 13-year-old girl when they strip-searched her on the suspicion she might be hiding ibuprofen in her underwear. The decision put school districts on notice that such searches are “categorically distinct” from other searches.

The court ruled 8 to 1, with the sole dissenter being Clarence Thomas.
