Clock Boy To Sue School District and City

Not one. red. cent.

Chicago (AFP) – The Muslim teenager arrested when a teacher mistook his homemade clock for a bomb threatened to sue his school and the town of Irving, Texas for $15 million, his lawyer said.

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, became an overnight sensation in September after his sister tweeted a photo of the aspiring inventor standing in handcuffs while wearing a t-shirt with the US space agency NASA’s logo.


They eventually moved to Qatar after Mohamed was offered a generous scholarship.

His attorneys are seeking $5 million in damages from the school district and $10 million from the city of Irving and said they will file a civil suit if they do not receive a reply within 60 days.

    If the school overstepped their bounds, and/or the police didn’t follow their own rules for detaining juveniles, or the city did something improper in speaking about the situation, then a lawsuit is a perfectly fine way for the aggrieved parties to have their case heard.

    You’d like to remove this right?
