Judge rules against Bucs; league defends pat-downs
July 28, 2006
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

TAMPA, Fla. -- Security "pat-downs" of fans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers games are unconstitutional and unreasonable, a federal judge ruled Friday, throwing into question the practice at NFL games nationwide.

U.S. District Judge James D. Whittemore issued an order siding with a season-ticket holder who had sued to stop the fan searches that began last season after the NFL implemented enhanced security measures.

Appears that suspicionless search is at a standstill, at least for a while, in Tampa, and maybe elsewhere. There really is a 4th amendment, Virginia.

What I find hard to believe is that, by and large, the fans stand for this. The stadia ought to have been empty last year.
