No random searches of groups of students with a metal-detecting scanner will be carried out in the Little Rock School District until officials draw up a new search policy to replace one overturned by a federal court. The district`s security chief says there will be no metal scanning until the district is sure how the searches can proceed within the law. The Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at St. Louis says the school district`s random searches of students` belongings violated the students` constitutional rights. The decision reversed a ruling in U.S. District Court in favor of the school district in a 1999 lawsuit. The suit was brought on behalf of a student by her parents, and was granted class-action status, which brought all the district`s secondary students into the case.
