A group of Georgia high school students have reached a $3 million settlement against the Worth County Sheriff’s Office after a judge ruled that law enforcement violated their civil rights by conducting a massive drug search without probable cause.
A judge ordered former Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby and his deputies to pay the staggering settlement to the students.
In April, Hobbs and his deputies spent hours at Worth County High School searching more than 800 students for drugs — and their search turned up empty.
flimbs: Was anyone fired? Otherwise, this is just the taxpayers coughing up their own money.
frankzzz: I wonder if all 850 joined the same suit, or if any sued separately/individually.
dotMJEG: This was already posted.
WorkerBeeHere: Expect most of the money to go to the lawyers and the school, not the students.
action____dan: Maybe they can use the money to buy some non slutty clothes so this won’t happen again.
