Searches and Seizures: The U.S. Supreme Court's Decision on the Fourth Amendment
Lincoln, Eugene A.
Urban Education, v21 n3 p254-62 Oct 1986
In New Jersey vs. T.L.O. (1985) the Supreme Court clarified and limited the student's Fourth Amendment rights against "unreasonable searches and seizures." When school officials act alone and on their own authority, they need not obtain a warrant but may conduct a search based on the lesser standard of "reasonableness." (LHW)
