 Essay regarding Supreme Court docket Case: Nj vs Capital t. L. U.

NewВ JerseyВ vsВ TLOВ (1985)В

TheВ supremeВ courtВ caseВ NewВ JerseyВ vsВ TLOВ wasВ fundamentalВ inВ clarifyingВ theВ applicationВ ofВ theВ FourthВ AmendmentВ ofВ theВ UnitedВ StatesВ Constitution. В TheВ fourthВ amendmentВ protectsВ citizensВ andВ theirВ belongingsВ againstВ " unreasonableВ searchesВ andВ seizures” (law. cornell. edu). В InВ 1985, В unnamedВ femaleВ studentВ publiclyВ knownВ asВ TLOВ wasВ caughtВ smokingВ withВ aВ friendВ inВ aВ designatedВ nonВ­smokingВ bathroomВ atВ PiscatawayВ HighВ SchoolВ inВ MiddlesexВ County, В NewВ Jersey. В WhileВ theВ otherВ studentВ confessed, В TLOВ deniedВ allegationsВ thatВ sheВ hadВ everВ smoked. В AВ viceВ principalВ thenВ searchedВ TLO'sВ purseВ andВ foundВ " rollingВ papers, В aВ pipe, В marijuana, В aВ largeВ wadВ ofВ dollarВ bills, В andВ twoВ lettersВ thatВ indicatedВ thatВ TLOВ wasВ involvedВ inВ marijuanaВ dealingВ atВ theВ highВ school” (infoplease. com). В Initially, В TLOВ wasВ sentencedВ byВ aВ juvenileВ courtВ toВ aВ yearВ inВ prison. В TheВ StateВ SupremeВ CourtВ overturnedВ thisВ decisionВ (sayingВ TLO'sВ fourthВ amendmentВ rightsВ wereВ violated). В TheВ stateВ ofВ NewВ JerseyВ askedВ theВ SupremeВ CourtВ considerВ itsВ appeal. В ThoseВ inВ favorВ ofВ NewВ JerseyВ claimedВ thatВ TLO'sВ behaviorВ providedВ reasonableВ suspicionВ andВ causeВ toВ searchВ forВ furtherВ evidenceВ ofВ theВ crime. В В TheyВ alsoВ believedВ thatВ schoolВ officialsВ didВ notВ requireВ aВ warrantВ toВ makeВ searchesВ orВ seizuresВ becauseВ theyВ actВ onВ behalfВ ofВ theВ parentsВ andВ needВ toВ protectВ theВ students. В OnВ theВ opposingВ side, В thoseВ whoВ supportedВ TLOВ believedВ thatВ schoolВ officialsВ didВ notВ haveВ theВ authorityВ toВ actВ asВ parentsВ becauseВ theyВ areВ stateВ employeesНѕВ theyВ mustВ respectВ students'В rightsВ toВ privacy. В Ultimately, В theВ SupremeВ CourtВ votedВ 6В­3В inВ favorВ ofВ NewВ Jersey. В TheВ Court'sВ opinionВ statedВ thatВ schoolВ officialsВ mustВ maintainВ disciplineВ andВ controlВ necessaryВ forВ education. В JusticeВ ByronВ WhiteВ agreedВ withВ theВ originalВ (juvenile)В court'sВ jurisdictionВ thatВ aВ " schoolВ officialВ mayВ properlyВ conductВ aВ searchВ ofВ aВ student'sВ personВ ifВ theВ...
