Judge rules against Texas teen who brought clock to school

Judge rules against Texas teen who brought clock to school

Attorneys for the teen said in November that he deserved $15 million - $10 million from the city of Irving and another $5 million from the city's school district. "There is no doubt in my mind that if a red haired or blond haired little boy or girl brought this EXACT same science project into the classroom, the police would NOT have been called". Mohamed, who was 14 at the time, was suspended, but the school later dropped its charge against him for having a "hoax bomb".

"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", added the ruling.

"Clock Boy", the Muslim teen in Texas who was feted by the White House and others as a victim of discrimination after his school punished him for bringing to class a homemade device that looked like a bomb, has lost another court case demanding damages.

Later Friday, the city of Irving released a statement saying it was "pleased with the federal court's ruling to dismiss the Mohamed lawsuit against the city".

Mohamed was taken into police custody after he displayed a homemade clock to teachers at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas.

When his father finally arrived at the school several hours later, the court documents state he "tried to explain to Officer Howman that A.M. was interested in robotics and created things, but she was unwilling to listen to his explanations".

"It was a very suspicious device". His family filed a civil rights lawsuit against the city of Irving and Irving School District for discriminating against the boy, aka "Clock Boy, based on his religion".

The arrest of then-14-year-old Ahmed was big news when it happened in September 2015.

His case drew worldwide attention, and then-President Barack Obama invited him to the White House.

But Lindsay said that the family's claims so far were "speculative and sweeping".

Mohamed's attorneys now have until June 1 to submit additional facts that might help prove discrimination; otherwise, the case will be closed. "Moving his whole family, losing their home here, the constant barrage of awful, hateful, mean, terrible things that people are saying to this little boy...he has to endure that all day, every day".
