Court: Do in-school interviews require warrants?

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court will decide whether child social workers should have to get warrants to interview potential victims of sex abuse at school when the alleged abuser lives at home.

The court decided to hear an appeal from Oregon prosecutors, who had their conviction of Nimrod Greene thrown out. Greene was convicted of abusing a 9-year-old child.

A social worker and a police officer had interviewed the child at the child's public school so Greene would not be around. The federal courts threw out the conviction, saying the social worker and police officer should have gotten a warrant before talking to the child.
