Um, the Supreme Court had to rule on this?

From the "No Shit" Files:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a school's strip search of an Arizona teenage girl accused of having prescription-strength ibuprofen was illegal. The court ruled 8-1 on Thursday that school officials violated the law with their search of Savana Redding in the rural eastern Arizona town of Safford.
Redding, who now attends college, was 13 when officials at Safford Middle School ordered her to remove her clothes and shake out her underwear because they were looking for pills -- the equivalent of two Advils. The district bans prescription and over-the-counter drugs and the school was acting on a tip from another student.
"What was missing from the suspected facts that pointed to Savana was any indication of danger to the students from the power of the drugs or their quantity, and any reason to suppose that Savana was carrying pills in her underwear," Justice David Souter wrote in the majority opinion. "We think that the combination of these deficiencies was fatal to finding the search reasonable."

Oh David Souter, you're getting randy in your pre-retirement days. Here's where I thought things went "fatal":
WHEN THE SCHOOL MADE A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL STRIP BECAUSE SOMEBODY NARC'ED HER FOR HAVING IBU-MUTHAFUCKIN-PROFIN.
Raleigh Sakers was right. Supreme Court, you are not the Supreme Court...
