Time’s Up: Clock Boy’s Lawsuit Against Texas City Tossed By Federal Judge

It’s over. Ahmed Mohamed’s lawsuit against the city of Irving, Texas has been tossed by a federal judge with prejudice. Mohamed’s father is now responsible for the court costs. The saga began under the Obama White House, where the Texas teenager was arrested in 2015 for bringing to school what looked like a bomb. Two lawsuits were filed against the city of Irving, along with Fox News, Glenn Beck, and the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro. The claim was that Mohamed's rights were violated. That suit was tossed in January of 2017. Mohamed’s father has to pick up the legal tab for that, which is at least $200,000. And now, the lawsuit against the city of Irving has been thrown out (via Free Beacon):

"Clock Boy" Ahmed Mohamed's lawsuit against the city of Irving, Texas and its school department has been dismissed nearly two years after it was filed.

Mohamed made national headlines in 2015 when the then-14-year-old brought a home-assembled clock to class at MacArthur High School in Irving. His teacher, believing the device to be a bomb, reported it to the school principal, who called the police.

Irving police took Mohamed into custody and interrogated him, believing he intentionally tried to cause a bomb scare. No charges were ever brought, but the case received widespread media attention because of the allegation Mohamed was singled out for his Islamic faith.

Time to punch out, kid. It’s done.
