My Kid Is Drug-Free

Mandatory drug tests.


One of those tested was 15-year-old Jamie Nolan, who said she felt violated by the process. "I did not appreciate that the school took time during -- review for final exams in order to wrongfully accuse us and make us feel guilty," she told WebMD.

Another Easton High student who tested positive was expelled -- and then reinstated when a private testing company reexamined the student's specimen and found no evidence of drug use.

The Lockney case is now in discovery and is not expected to be heard in federal court until the end of the year. Eventually, ACLU lawyers predict, it could end up at the Supreme Court, where the justices may finally determine how far school districts can go in their search for students on drugs.

Meanwhile, the Tannahills are using their mutual love of baseball to help them cope with the tension of the case. The end of a long day is often the beginning of a long game of catch in the front yard of their home. Larry has coached Brady's baseball teams for years, watching him rise from T-ball to the "major league" level in the area's Little League program.

In between games, father and son give interviews; their story is being told around the world. Brady remains a bit bewildered by it all. "I don't understand why so many people are so interested," he says.

Tannahill doesn't know what to expect if his case goes before the U.S. Supreme Court. He filed this lawsuit, he says, because he's determined to protect his son's rights, and his own rights as a parent.

"My boy was given to my wife and me by God," he says. "In the end, it is our responsibility to raise him. He is not the school district's responsibility."
