Board of Education v. Earls
The Supreme Court expanded schools' ability to conduct drug tests in Board of Education v. Earls, 536 U.S. 822 (2002). The case began when the school board in Tecumseh, Oklahoma developed a policy to test all students in extracurricular activities. High school student Lindsay Earls and her family, with the legal backing of the American Civil Liberties Union, challenged the policy as an unlawful search that violated students' right to privacy.
The documentary tells the story of the case through interviews with the people involved: the Earls family, their ACLU lawyer, members of the Tecumseh School Board and their lawyer, and the federal judges who heard the case.
