4986689 story Middle-School Strip Search Ruled Unconstitutional 528 Posted by timothy on Thursday June 25, 2009 @04:34PM from the moment-of-claritin dept. yuna49 writes "The US Supreme Court today ruled 8-1 that the strip search of a 13-year-old girl by officials in an Arizona middle school was unconstitutional. However, by a vote of 7-2, the Court also ruled that the individual school officials could not be held personally liable. A suit for damages against the school district itself is still going forward. We discussed this case at length back in March when the Court decided to hear the case on appeal."
