Bad news for ‘clock boy’: Judge rules no discrimination, then sends him off with empty pockets

Powered by Topple

It appears that “clock boy” won’t be going to the bank to cash any discrimination checks.

On Thursday a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by the father of “clock boy,” Ahmed Mohamed, preventing him from getting any money from the city of Irving, Texas or his school.

“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 judge wrote in a decision obtained by the Daily Mail.

The judge said that the plaintiff did not identify any custom, policy or practice of the city that was in any way a violation of the child’s rights, according to the Mail.

“Absent allegations of intentional discrimination, or allegations from which the court can reasonably infer intentional discrimination, Plaintiff fails to allege an equal protection violation against the IISD,” the decision read.

Mohamed’s case became an international story after the youngster brought a homemade clock to school that, to any reasonable person, resembled a briefcase bomb.

The school alleged that Mohamed violated the teachers warnings and activated the clock after he was told not to.

Mohamed’s family was demanding a total of $15 million dollars, but it appears that they will get nothing, although they are entitled to appeal the decision.

They also sued conservative journalist Ben Shapiro for defamation, but were, again, defeated in court.

Many wondered if “clock boy” and his family intended to sue all along after the young man sent out a tweet about meeting with his lawyer.

Perhaps it’s time to stop looking for a cash grab.
