Safford Unified School District v. Redding, a case involving the strip search of Savana Redding, a 13-year-old student of Safford Middle School, reached the U.S. Supreme Court in 2009. She was suspected of distributing prescription-strength Ibuprofen pills due to the accusation of another student found with pills, although no pills were found. The Supreme Court found that the search violated the Fourth Amendment, but qualified immunity foreclosed the suit against the individual defendants; the Court remanded the decision as to Safford's liability to the lower courts.
