Girls suing school for strip search

A story that I've been following regarding the Atlantic High School strip search of five girls that were accused of stealing $100. BTR Atlantic school search (They never found the money). Three of the girls are suing the principals involved:
The three girls were among those ordered to submit to a search in a locker room during a gym class on the third day of the school year.

Listed as defendants in the case are the school district, as well as Paul Croghan, who was the high school’s assistant principal at the time; and Heather Turpin, a school counselor.

Strips searches are illegal in Iowa schools, but apparently there are no criminal consequences if one should perpetrate an illegal strip search. No one has been charged.
