SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A recent southwest Missouri high school graduate and his family have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review whether drug searches in high schools violate the Fourth Amendment rights of students against unlawful search and seizure.

Connor Mizer was sitting in a third-floor classroom at Central High School three years ago when a lockdown was announced and Greene County sheriff's deputies brought in a drug-sniffing dog. The Springfield News-Leader reports the sweep didn't turn up any drugs, but it sparked a court fight over whether warrantless searches in schools are allowed under the U.S. Constitution.

The district has won at both the district and appeals court levels, but Mizer, his mother and her former husband have continued the fight and are hoping the Supreme Court will hear the case.
