Strip Search Cases

We served as co-lead counsel in numerous class actions on behalf of individuals who were strip searched in county jails after being arrested for minor crimes. These cases included invasions of privacy that the courts then regarded as illegal. Significantly, the Supreme Court interpreted the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment more narrowly than nearly all federal appellate courts had interpreted it. The outcomes in these cases will benefit thousands of people who suffered the indignity of being strip searched.
