2010 Fourth Amendment Symposium
The Fourth Amendment Rights of Children and Juveniles
2010 is the 25th anniversary of New Jersey v. T.L.O., 469 U.S. 325 (1985), which broadly set out the framework for evaluating searches of students by school authorities. In Safford School District v. Redding (cert. granted 01/16/09), the Court revisited that issue in the context of a strip search of a student by school authorities looking for nonprescription drugs. Beyond the school setting, there are many unique aspects of the application of the Fourth Amendment to juveniles and younger children.
