A judge ruled against a lawsuit brought on by the family of Ahmed Mohamed, known as “Clock Boy.” The boy became famous for an alleged Islamophobia incident in Texas in 2015, when in ninth grade, he was handcuffed and questioned for bringing a clock to school. School officials thought it was an explosive device.

Mohamed was invited to then-President Barack Obama’s White House and other public figures issued statements in support of Mohamed.

The family sued the Irving Independent School District for $15 million in damages, but the lawsuit was amended twice before this recent ruling.
