Court: Protection from Strip Searches in School

Wow. I'm pleasantly surprised since the questioning during oral argument suggested a lop-sided victory in the other direction. There really should be no strip searches in public schools. I wonder what turned them around to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's way of thinking. She had her work cut out for her.

Justice Clarence Thoma was the sole dissenter and I have a slippery slope question for those who would take his side. Would a school, using his reasoning (ahem) be prohibited from conducting a cavity search?
