The U.S. Supreme Court declared constitutional an “administrative search exception” to the Fourth Amendment [Committee for GI Rights v. Callaway 518 F. 2D 466, 474 D.C. Cir. 1975] with regard to random drug testing of military personnel, reasoning that the state’s strong public interest to ensure military readiness outweighs the privacy interests of servicemen who already serve under considerably diminished Fourth Amendment rights.
