C.N. v. Ridgewood
C. N. v. Ridgewood Bd. of Educ., 430 F.3d 159 (3rd Cir. 2006), was a case brought by parents against their school district for asking personal questions of their children in a survey without parental permission. The questions concerned drug use, sex, suicide, and many other privacy-invading issues.
The Court of Appeals, in a decision joined by future U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, held that parents had no right to be informed about the survey beforehand and no right to require their consent before compelling their children to answer.
