Andrew Cohen On Supreme Court Decisions

The Supreme Court ruled today in an 8-1 vote that the strip search of a female teen by high school officials for ibuprofen was a violation of the teen's constitutional rights.

CBS News legal analyst Andrew Cohen says that it's "important to remember" that the court didn't illegalize school searches but rather drew a line around necessary conditions for aggressive searches.

The Supreme Court will also rule on the controversial Connecticut firemen case that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor ruled on in the U.S. Court of Appeals.

In the case, the firemen accuse the fire department of reverse discrimination against them. Cohen says the Court ruling of the case could prove "embarrassing" for Sotomayor, given that she ruled against the firemen in court.
