Federal Court Tosses Clock Boy's Civil Rights Lawsuit

A Federal court has thrown out “Clock Boy Ahmed’s” civil rights lawsuit. The lawsuit accused the city of Irving and the Irving school district of discrimination. Ahmed was 14 years old at the time of the incident in 2015. Ahmed brought a homemade clock to school that was extremely suspicious looking. Ahmed claims he brought it in to show his engineering teacher. An alarm went off in his English class which resulted in the teacher confiscating the device. Ahmed was immediately sent to the principal’s office.

The lawsuit claimed Mohamed’s civil rights were violated when he was interrogated at length without his parents and arrested on hoax bomb charges.

“A.M. never stated the device was anything other than a clock, never threatened anyone with harm, never claimed to have made a bomb, and never attempted to scare or cause alarm to anyone. When he asked for his parents, he was told that he could not speak with them because he was in the middle of an interrogation.” – Ahmed’s attorney


Police said Mohamed was not very forthcoming and the school was concerned that the device was possibly a bomb. Officers acted in an abundance of caution.

“It was a very suspicious device. We live in an age where you can’t take things like that to school. Of course we’ve seen across our country horrific things happen. We have to err on the side of caution.” – Irving Police Chief Larry Boyd

The charges against Mohamed were later dropped but the school still suspended him for three days. The city and school district both denied violating Mohamed’s rights or discriminating against him because of his religion. A judge granted their request to dismiss the suit on Friday:

“Plaintiff does not allege any facts from which this court can reasonably infer that any IISD employee intentionally discriminated against Ahmed Mohamed based on his race or religion,” the ruling states.” – Judge

Mohamed’s attorneys have until June 1 to submit additional facts that might help prove discrimination. If they fail to do so, the case will be officially closed.
