Well whaddaya know? Strip searching a 13 year old on a hunch IS unconstitutional!
Today the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled in a 6-5
decision that students cannot be strip-searched based on the

school official who ordered the strip search, Vice Principal Kerry
Wilson, is financially liable in the case and cannot claim qualified
What really gets me is that it was a 6-5 decision, what sort of person would vote it was legal to strip search a 13 year old honor student searching for Advil… yes, Advil.
