The most liberal judges got this one right.

The Supreme court ruled today that the strip search of an Arizona student was illegal. In the ruling, liberal justices determined that the search of the student for ibprophrine was flat out wrong. They determined however that the officials who made this grave decision could not be held liable.
My least two favorites, Stevens and Ginsberg got the right answer though.
A federal magistrate dismissed a suit by Redding and her mother, April. An appeals panel agreed that the search didn't violate her rights. But last July, a full panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the search was "an invasion of constitutional rights" and that Wilson could be found personally liable.
Justices John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented from the portion of the ruling saying that Wilson could not be held financially liable
Conservative justices mistakenly sided with the school thugs. Thanks guys for giving a score to the liberals. I thought you were the ones defending individual rights and upholding the constitution. You let them off the hook and instead are punishing the tax payers for this assholes behavior. And my favorite justice madethe worst decision of all.
In a dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas said the search had been legal and the court previously had given school officials "considerable leeway" under the Fourth Amendment in school settings.
Dear justice Thomas, you are wrong. Just because you made a screwed up ruling did not make it legal. The previous ruling was wrong, you should know it wrong. Go back to the constitution and forget all the other utter bull shit you have been reading.
