O.’s purse, and found a small plastic bag containing a grass-like substance and items that could be drug paraphernalia, including a pipe, a wad of money, a piece of paper with the names of students who apparently owed T. Justice Brennan, joined by Justice Marshall, agreed with the Court’s finding that the Fourth Amendment applies to public school teachers and that school officials may generally search students without a warrant.
Justice Brennan, joined by Justice Marshall, concurred in part and dissented in part.
It also applies to the conduct of public school officials.
Applying this standard to the facts of this case, the Court held that the Fourth Amendment was not violated by the school administrator’s search. However, New Jersey’s highest court ultimately reversed, holding, in T. O.’s case, the school administrator’s conduct was not reasonable because the mere possession of cigarettes did not violate school rules. Supreme Court Vote: 6-3 Argued: March 28, 1984 Re-argued: October 2, 1984 Decided: January 15, 1985 Majority Opinion: Justice White Concurrences: Justice Powell, with Justice Day O’Connor Justice Blackmun Concurrence in Part and Dissent in Part: Justice Brennan, with Justice Marshall Justice Stevens, with Justices Marshall and Brennan The Court held that the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures is not limited solely to the actions of law enforcement personnel.
Disclaimer (Please Note): This activity is meant to help high school students understand, as part of their civics education, the key facts and holdings of a well-known U. The Fourteenth Amendment The provisions of the first Ten Amendments to the Constitution, i.e., the Bill of Rights (1791), originally were applicable only to the federal government, and not to state governments. It says, in relevant part, “[N]or shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.” In a series of cases starting in 1925, the U. Supreme Court interpreted the 14th Amendment as “incorporating” (applying) most but not all of the provisions of the Bill of Rights to the states. Also applicable to the states was the exclusionary rule (a remedy by which evidence seized in violation of the Fourth Amendment is inadmissible in court). Find cases that help define what the Fourth Amendment means.
Thus, the search violated the Fourth Amendment and the evidence should be suppressed. It in no way provides legal advice or guidance on this or other issues. 643 (1961), the Court held that the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures was applicable to States. Supreme Court had the authority to decide whether the actions of the school administrator in T. The Constitution, through the Fourth Amendment, protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government.
A group of legislators* introduced A1504, Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act in the New Jersey Assembly on January 9, 2018.

Rather, the reasonableness of a search, under all circumstances, will determine its legality. In a concurrence, Justice Powell, joined by Justice O’Connor, agreed with the majority’s opinion, but he would have emphasized the fact that, in a school setting, the Constitution may not afford students all of the constitutional protections they would otherwise have in a non-school setting.
The administrator contacted the police who, in turn, contacted T. As such, school authorities do not need to obtain a warrant or have probable cause that a crime occurred before searching a student. First, the Court concluded that the search was justified at its inception. Although the Court held that the Fourth Amendment applied to the school administrator’s actions, the court ultimately determined that his actions in this case did not violate the Fourth Amendment.
