The case of a Colorado 4-year-old girl who was strip searched by a government social worker could prompt the U.S. Supreme Court to take a new look at its “qualified immunity” doctrine that lets officials off the hook in some circumstances when they violate an individual’s civil rights.

At the court’s May 16 private conference, the justices will consider whether to grant review in the case of I.B. v. Woodard. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in January dismissed the girl’s claim that case worker April Woodard violated the Fourth Amendment by stripping and photographing her without a warrant or parental consent. The search came after allegations that the child had been abused.
