The Associated Press reports a state appeals court said Tuesday, July 17, that the San Francisco 49ers may pat down fans before they enter Monster Park. The California Court of Appeal said that Daniel and Kathleen Sheehan waived their privacy concerns because they knew of the pat-down searches before they bought their tickets for the 2006-07 season. The court said the couple could quit going to games if the searches offended them.
