The Supreme Court isn’t touching Gov. Scott’s attempt to violate the Fourth Amendment.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s petition to review a ruling that his random drug testing policy for state employees is unconstitutional, the latest in a series of legal battles facing the governor.
Gov. Scott is 0 for 2 on the drug testing front:
Scott faced similar defeat Dec. 31, 2013, when a federal judge struck down a law requiring Florida cash welfare recipients to pass a drug test. It could constitute an illegal search and seizure, a judge said.
If the law applied to everyone who received cash welfare — including corporations — the law would never have seen the light of day in the first place.
