This case was filed on February 19, 1999, in the United States District Court for the Southern district of Florida, by a student who was arrested and strip searched for her association with the publication of a satirical student newspaper entitled "First Amendment." The newspaper was published anonymously and contained no attribution to any individual.

After an investigation by the principle of the school, police were summoned to conduct interrogations of several identified students. These students were arrested, the minors taken to a juvenile facility and the 18-year-olds incarcerated at TGK jail. They were charged with the misdemeanor violation of Fla. Stat. 836.11 which prohibits anonymous publication if it "tends to expose any religious group to hatred, contempt, ridicule or obloquy." The arresting officer enhanced each charge under Florida's "hate crime" statute, converting the misdemeanors into felonies.

The Miami Dade County's Department of corrections had a policy of strip searching felony arrestees upon booking. Plaintiff was subjected to a full strip and body cavity search. Ultimately, all charges were dismissed by the state attorney general's office, along with a public statement acknowledging that the statute under which the students were arrested is unconstitutional and unenforceable.

On April 18, 2000, the Court (Judge Ursula Ungaro-Benages) denied Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment against the County, finding that the strip search was not unreasonable, as it was conducted in the context of an arrest for a felony offense.

On October 18, 2000, the Court (Judge Ursula Ungaro-Benages) denied Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment against the school on grounds that she had failed to identify a sufficient policy, custom or decision of a final policymaker of the School Board that caused the alleged unconstitutional arrest and thereby permit the imposition of § 1983 liability.

On March 14, 2002, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed the District Court's decision. 285 F.3rd 962 (11th Cir. 2002).
