Byrd v. Maricopa County Sheriff's Department to be Reheard En Banc

In Byrd v. Maricopa County Sheriff's Department, No. 07-16640 (May 18, 2009) a split panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held that cross-gender strip searches were constitutional under the Fourth Amendment.  The Ninth Circuit has agreed to rehear the case en banc (order).  For some Byrd-related gallows humor, check out this post by Shaun Martin.
