Clock Boy gets “clocked” !

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the father of a Muslim student who was detained by school officials in 2015 over a clock that looked suspiciously like a bomb.

Former MacArthur High School student Ahmed Mohamed’s father sued the Irving Independent School District and the City of Irving after the then 14-year-old was detained and questioned by school officials over a homemade clock he brought to school in September 2015.

Mohamed was briefly charged with making a “hoax bomb,” but the charge was later dropped and his father alleged officials discriminated against the boy because he’s Muslim, and violated his constitutional rights, the Dallas Morning News reports.
