Argument in Strip-Search Case

Adam Liptak has this story in the NYT on the oral argument in the jail strip search case:

The Supreme Court considered on Wednesday whether the Constitution places limits on strip-searches of people entering jails, and quickly confronted two separate line-drawing problems, both involving the task of balancing dignity against security.
One concerned who may be searched. The other asked how intrusive the search may be.

The various approaches to the two issues proposed by the lawyers in the case seemed to leave the justices unsatisfied and sometimes exasperated.
