NJ man files wrongful search & seizure suit

EDISON - A New Jersey man is bringing a wrongful strip search case all the way to the United States Supreme Court.

Albert Florence claims he was pulled over and arrested on an outstanding warrant for traffic fines that he had already paid. Florence says his rights were then violated when he was forced into a strip search.

Florence was cleared and released from jail six days later, but not before being forced into another strip search. Florence's case claims he was subjected to unreasonable search and seizures.

Prison officials claim they were within their rights when the two strip searches were performed. Arguments in the case are set to begin tomorrow.
