Today, the Supreme Court heard arguments from ACLU attorney Adam Wolf in the Savana Redding case. When Savana was 13 years old, she was strip-searched for allegedly possessing prescription-strength ibuprofen. School officials violated Savana’s rights and called into question basic constitutional protections for all students in schools across America. Savana and her mother April recorded a short video with Graham Boyd, an attorney here at the ACLU who is working with them. Learn about this case by watching this video:
