Case Summary

On November 28, 2007, five arrestees, proceeding through private counsel, filed a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey in order to challenge the blanket strip search policy of the Ocean County Correctional Facility.

On November 28, 2007, five arrestees, proceeding through private counsel, filed a 42 U.S.C. § 1983 class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey in order to challenge the blanket strip search policy of the Ocean County Correctional Facility. The named plaintiffs alleged that they were all arrested for misdemeanor or petty crimes and, upon their admission to the jail, were strip searched pursuant to the unconstitutional blanket policy of strip searching every pre-trial detainee that entered the Jail, regardless of the crime charged and without making a determination whether there was a reasonable suspicion that the detainee possessed weapons or contraband. Plaintiffs alleged that the policy violated the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and sought monetary and injunctive relief, as well as class certification. Defendants answered Plaintiffs' complaint by generally denying the charges.

The case was assigned to District Court Judge Freda L. Wolfson and Magistrate Judge Tonianne J. Bongiovanni.

At the time of this summary, the case was ongoing.
