The U.S. Supreme Court took up an issue which might interest people other than lawyers (in particular teachers, and some of you are involved in school systems, and parents) because the topic was pretty rare. On Tuesday of last week, the Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of Safford United School District v. Redding, which involved the constitutionality of a principal's near strip search of a 13 year old girl for drugs. Early returns indicate that the search may be upheld, but no decision has been issued. For some great analysis of the arguments in the case, please click here to access the Supreme Court of the United States Blog or SCOTUSblog.com.
In the case of Robert v. Tesson, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, held that, in applying the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abuduction, the children's "habitual residence" was the United States instead of France when the mother removed them, as six-year-olds, from France for the last time. The children stayed for 15 months in France, but had lived in the United States with their mother before going to France. They had little contact with their father who lived in France.
