CASE BRIEF Case Citation: Safford Unified School Dist. #1, et al, v. April Redding , 557 U.S. ___, 129 S.Ct. 2633; 174 L.Ed.2d 354 (2009) Court: Supreme Court of the United States Plaintiff: Safford United School District Defendant: April Redding Facts: 13 year old Savana Redding was strip searched at her middle school after Principal Wilson discovered a planner along with a knife and contraband. Savana then admitted that the planner was hers but would not know anything about the knife or contraband. It was then reported to Principle Wilson that Savana has been distributing ibuprofen to fellow students. Savana denied such fact. Principle Wilson and Admisnistrative Assisstant Helen Romero had Savana go to the nurse’s office where Peggy Schwallier, the nurse, ‘strip searched’ her. Later the Redding family sues the school for the violation of the Fourth Amendment. Issues: Does the Fourth Amendment exclude school officials from strip searching students suspected of possessing drugs in violation of school policy? Can the school be sued for the damages?
