As Twitchy reported, the family of Ahmed Mohamed, the teen who dazzled Barack Obama with his “cool clock,” last fall filed a lawsuit demanding apologies and on-air retractions from a list of pundits and politicians including Fox News, Glenn Beck and The Blaze, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, and Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne.

Things did not go well for the plaintiffs at a hearing in January, and Shapiro lowered the boom Thursday by posting a court order dismissing the suit against him.

The Texas Citizens Participation Act is an anti-SLAPP statute meant to discourage frivolous lawsuits intended only to silence the defendant. Therefore, Shapiro is entitled to be reimbursed for attorneys fees, court costs, and other expenses.
