Ahmed 'Clock Boy' Mohamed Gets Laughed Out Of Court Again

Mohamed's complaint also said IISD has an'ugly history of race struggles' and the State of Texas and the IISD have a'history of discrimination against Muslims in Texas curriculum and schools

Summary: The family of the Irving teenager who brought a homemade clock to school that was mistaken as a possible bomb had filed a civil rights lawsuit against the school district and city.

Ahmed Mohamed was arrested after bringing a homemade clock to school that his teacher thought might be a bomb in back 2015. Before Mohamed could reclaim his device, he was arrested at MacArthur High School. A federal judge ruled on behalf of defendants at the Irving Independent School District, principal Daniel Cummings, and the city of Irving, Texas.

Charges against Ahmed were ultimately dropped, but the school suspended him for three days.

He also added the school district had an "ugly history of race struggles", while the State of Texas and the IISD have a "history of discrimination against Muslims in Texas curriculum and schools". If they did not comply, they threatened a civil rights suit.

In January, another lawsuit was tossed out when a state district judge dismissed Mohamed's claims against conservative commentator Glenn Beck and his network.

The boy's family moved to Qatar for safety reasons after the incident, where he was awarded a scholarship from the country's Young Innovator's Program.

The clock boy lawsuit was seeking punitive damages, unspecified compensatory damages, and attorney fees.

At the time, officials defended their actions by saying they did the best with what they knew at the time.

The incident precipitated a national drama heavy on accusations of racism and Islamophobia, that concluded with Mohamed high profile visit to the White House.

WND reported that when the case against Shapiro and others was dismissed, the judge pressed Mohamed's lawyer, Fort Worth attorney Susan Hutchison, to provide any facts that would suggest that the defendants said anything false or defamatory about Mohamed or his son during the television broadcasts.

"Absent allegations of intentional discrimination, or allegations from which the court can reasonably infer intentional discrimination, Plaintiff fails to allege an equal protection violation against the IISD", the decision read.

Mohamed's attorneys now have until June 1 to submit additional facts that might help prove discrimination; otherwise, the case will be closed. Do you think they need to tone it down?
