The Commonwealth Court has ruled that a County law requiring that all people entering a courthouse to pass through a metal detector does not violate the Constitution. In Minich v Jefferson County, Mr. Minich attempted to enter the Courthouse while possessing concealed handguns issued pursuant to valid gun permits. Mr. Minich refused to be searched and was denied entry into the building. Mr. Minich sued claiming his Constutional rights against unreasonable search and seizure were violated. The Court found Mr. Minich to be incorrect and held that the County had the right to protect the public and it’s employees from possible harm. If Mr. Minich wants to enter the Courthouse he will need to agree to be searched.
