Judge Rules against Teen Who Brought Clock to School

Posted/updated on: May 20, 2017 at 1:50 pm

DALLAS (AP) – A judge has dismissed the lawsuit filed by the father of a Muslim boy arrested after taking a homemade clock to his suburban Dallas school. Judge Sam Lindsay’s ruling allows Ahmed Mohamed’s family to file a new complaint that the Irving, Texas, school district discriminated against him in 2015 because of his race and religion. But Lindsay said that the family’s claims so far were “speculative and sweeping.” Mohamed, then 14, brought to school a homemade clock that officials thought was a hoax bomb.
