Skinner Topicality

Recommended Posts

The Skinner case basically overturns Skinner v. Railway Labor Executives, which is a precedent that allows the government to randomly search federal employees for drugs. (At least, that's what I gathered from my teammate's flows).

 

I have to write a T block for it... what would you recommend?

T- Reasonable Expectation of Privacy.

 

The Skinner decision only allows for blood and urine tests on train workers after a major accident, and it cites statistics that show that most accidents are caused by intoxication. Since they shouldn't be on anything while operating or working on a train, it is reasonable to perform these tests in this specific context. Also, you should take a closer look at the advantages to this case, because there can't be any serious objection to this ruling that culminates in anything more than a bar fight.

Actualy the decesion means that the gov. can urine test at any time not just after a major accident, and not just train employees, but rather all federal employees. Read the Maclin 2005 card it tells you. And i think that it is topical by ur def. because ur def. sux. But it will result more than just a bar fight, because it tells you that it makes people not want to fully participate in poltical life and society. But you are entitled to your own opinion.
