Washington Woman Files Suit Against Local Jail Over Alleged Illegal Strip Search

From Avvo News:
A Washington woman has filed a civil rights lawsuit against a jailhouse and officers in connection with an alleged illegal strip search following a 2008 arrest.

The Olympian reports that the lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Cynthia Brown, who claims that she was shot with a Taser when she refused to undress in front of male corrections officers after she was arrested on misdemeanor trespassing charges, which were later dismissed.
