BREAKING: “Clock Boy” Discrimination Lawsuit Against School District Dismissed

Written by  Seth Connell

Remember the infamous “Clock Boy” case, where a Muslim student in Texas created what was supposed to be a clock, but actually looked like a bomb? Well, after the school district had him arrested, suspecting it was a bomb, the family of Ahmed Ahmed sued the school district for discrimination.

However, the lawsuit has been dismissed, and Clock Boy’s revenge quest will be left unfulfilled (at least for now).

This was the “clock” that Ahmed made back in 2015.

When college students at George Mason University were shown the device, they overwhelmingly thought it was a bomb. Is it any surprise that the school district thought the same?

Of course, the family said it was because he was Muslim and that they were discriminating against him. They took the Irving, Texas school district to court, but the case is officially dead, the New York Post is reporting.

Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed sued the city of Irving, the Irving Independent School District and the principal of MacArthur High School on behalf of his son Ahmed Mohamed, whose arrest and three-day suspension for taking a clock — mistaken by a teacher as a bomb — to school on Sept. 14, 2015, attracted national headlines.
