11-10-08 State of New Jersey v. Thomas E. Best

A school principal may search a student's car parked on
school grounds whenever, under the totality of the
circumstances, the principal reasonably suspects that evidence
of criminal activity will be found in the vehicle. In light of
the strong State interest in maintaining order, safety and
discipline in the school environment, neither probable cause nor
a warrant is required.
