US Muslim teen accused of clock bomb seeks $15 million

Ahmed Mohamed

Attorneys for a 14-year-old Muslim boy arrested after the homemade clock he took to his Dallas-area school was mistaken for a possible bomb said Monday he was publicly mistreated and deserves $15 million.

A law firm representing Ahmed Mohamed sent letters Monday demanding $10 million from the city of Irving and $5 million from the Irving Independent School District. The letters also threaten lawsuits and seek written apologies.

Ahmed, a robotics fan,  took his clock to school in September to impress a new teacher at MacArthur High School. Instead, he was accused of trying to scare people with a hoax bomb and escorted from the school in handcuffs. He was arrested but never charged. He was suspended from school.

His lawyers insist that the school, police force and city officials violated Ahmed’s rights by wrongfully accusing and detaining him and then decided to “trash” him when the media got wind of the story.
“Ahmed clearly was singled out because of his race, national origin and religion, ” attorney Kelly Hollingsworth wrote. Ahmed is the son of Sudanese immigrants who lived in a Dallas suburb.

“What has happened to this family is inexcusable, ” Hollingsworth said in an e-mail. “As indicated in the letters, the long term effects on Ahmed are incalculable.”
