Last year, a federal judge dismissed a $15 million civil rights lawsuit filed by the family of Ahmed “clock boy” Mohamed. After that, the family filed an amended version of the lawsuit, which a judge has again dismissed:

From the Dallas Morning News:
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Irving ISD, the city of Irving and several others filed by the father of a teen who was arrested after bringing a homemade clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb.
The federal lawsuit alleged Ahmed Mohamed’s civil rights were violated in September 2015 when Irving police officers took him into custody at MacArthur High School and charged him with making a “hoax bomb.” The then 14-year-old was also suspended from school for three days.
You might recall while all that was going on, then President Obama invited Ahmed to a science event at the White House.
Will the family attempt to file another suit? It looks like time is definitely up.
Clockmed and his crazy old man strike out again.
