Case Summary

This case was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana in 2002 by a woman who claimed her Fourth Amendment rights were violated by the local police department when she was arrested and required to change into a jail uniform in the presence of a female officer. She was required to remove her street clothing, but for her underpants, and to dress in the uniform while the officer observed. At no time did the officer touch the plaintiff, or conduct any kind of visual inspection or cavity search.

The District Court (Judge John Daniel Tinder) granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants and the arrestee appealed. Stanley v. Henson, 2002 WL 1821793.

On July 28, 2003, the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit affirmed the lower court decision, finding that the clothing exchange procedure was reasonable and did not amount to an overly intrusive strip search. Stanley v. Hanson, 337 F.3d 961 (7th Cir. 2003).
