Upholding Random Car Searches at Prisons
The Third Circuit has upheld the Pa Department of Correction's policy of subjecting prison visitors' cars to random searches against a constitutional attack made by the parents of a prisoner at SCI-Huntingdon. See Neumeyer v. Beard, No. 04-1499 (3d Cir. 8/25/05) (precedential opinion on website).
