Back in September 2015, the nation felt for a 14-year-old Muslim student who was handcuffed and tossed in jail after a teacher accused him of bringing a bomb to his Texas school… which later turned out to be a clock.
Ahmed Mohamed’s father, Mohamed Mohamed, filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Irving, TX and the Irving Independent School District after he claims his son was wrongfully detained. Well, it looks like there will be no justice served here because it has been reported that a judge has thrown out the case.
“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 ruling stated.
The judge also said the family was not entitled to any damages from the city or the school district because the suit had “absent allegations” and did not prove that the teacher intentionally accused Ahmed of having a bomb because of his race and religion.
The judge also threw out the lawsuit Mohamed filed against commentator Glenn Beck, who he says painted his family as terrorists.
Mohamed and his family have since moved to Qatar.
