Court: Strip-search needs reasonable cause

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- A federal court in California ruled Friday that authorities may not conduct strip-searches without reasonable suspicion the subjects are carrying contraband.

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a lawsuit challenging the practice of San Francisco city and county authorities of strip-searching inmates as a means of deterring drugs and weapons traffic in jails, the Los Angeles Times reported. The panel found the practice is a violation of constitutional prohibition on unreasonable search and seizure.

The ruling also cleared the way for lawsuits against San Francisco County Sheriff Michael Hennessey, the newspaper said.
