Florence v. Bd. of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Burlington, 09-3603, involved a plaintiff's 42 U.S.C. section 1983 suit challenging the strip search of plaintiff upon his admission to the general population following his arrest on a bench warrant.  In vacating the district court's grant of summary judgment on plaintiff's Fourth Amendment strip search claim, the court remanded the matter as, balancing the jail's interests at the time of intake before arrestees enter the general population against the privacy interests of the inmates, the strip search procedures described by the district court at the county jail and the county correctional facility are reasonable.
