Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli issued an official opinion Wednesday that says public school officials have the authority to seize and search the contents of students’ cell phones and laptops.

“It is my opinion that searches and seizures of students’ cellular phones and laptops are permitted when there is a reasonable suspicion that the student is violating the law or the rules of the school,” Cuccinelli, a Republican from Fairfax County, wrote in his advisory opinion.
