AbstractWhether school administrators are still entitled to qualified immunity was addressed recently by the Sixth Circuit in Knisley v. Pike County Joint Vocational School District (Knisley) at least as to school districts located in the states within that Circuit (Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee). The purpose of this article is to examine the Knisley decision and its implications for section 1983 damages liability for school officials who direct or participate in student strip searches.
