Title VI and equal protection are the only even remotely plausible claims but there's just no way they can make a showing of intentional discrimination.
The thing that always bugged me about this was the little briefcase lockable box thing he put the guts of the clock in. So not only did you pull the guts out of a digital clock, but you thought it would be wise to put it in a case. $#@! that little phony ass kid and his family for this bull$#@!.
They are grooming this little piece of $#@! to be a victimized pawn. Future terrorist leader
Lulz at the hystrionics in that article. Couldn't it have been entitled "kid sends standard pre-suit letter"?
It just amazes me that some idiot kid from some idiot family in some $#@!hole DFW suburb can wind people up so much.....
^^^ Here's a Qatar, call someone who cares.
Lighten up Ahmed. We're all in this mess together. Hell one of these men may save your life one of these days disarming your homemade "clock".

Can we loan Irving ISD some letterhead for their response?
The clock boys are back in town:
‘Clock Boy’ Ahmed Returns: Just Couldn’t Stay Away from Texas
by MERRILL HOPE28 Jun 2016897
“Clock Boy” Ahmed returned to the United States late Monday afternoon, June 27, landing at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Breitbart Texas reported the “homesick” teenager just couldn’t stay away from Texas. Ahmed, his parents, and siblings walked into the airport terminal greeted by a crowd of family and a hoard of TV news crews.
KDFW 4 (Fox) reported the Mohamed family “alerted” the TV news outlet to the teen’s return. His grandmother flew in from the Sudan for this homecoming, according to the local Fox affiliate.
The teen and his family have been living in Qatar for the past nine months where he accepted a fully-funded education scholarship from the Qatar Foundation. Monday, Ahmed told reporters he came back for a summer internship with Twitter.
Ahmed also said Facebook, NASA, and even, MIT, the prestigious university he nixed in favor of attending the Qatari school, contacted him over social media, asking him to visit while he is stateside this summer.
He told KDFW 4 there is a 50/50 chance he will finish high school in the U.S. and not Qatar. However, the Dallas Morning News reported the teen plans to return to Qatar to finish high school and attending an American college remains a possibility. Conversely, KDFW 4 reported the teen said he definitely wants to go to a U.S. college..@IStandWithAhmed is in Dallas. He has an internship with @twitter, will visit Facebook, MIT & NASA this summer. pic.twitter.com/P14RcFmUuA

“School was amazing over there,” the teen explained to the Dallas newspaper. Regardless of where he studies, he says his interests are coding, engineering and technology.
“It’s beautiful to be here in U.S.A,” added Ahmed’s father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, who also spoke to news media. He told KDFW 4: “It is our home and it is our country and we love it.”
The patriotic sounding Mohamed patriarch, however, posted a controversial photo last September of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers enveloped in smoke during the heinous 2001 terrorist attacks on his Sudanese National Reform party page, which Breitbart Texas reported. This post sourced to the Sudanese Military Establishment and asserted a truther philosophy that 9/11 was an inside job, calling these “so-called” events a “rumor.”
In October, the elder Mohamed, shared another 9/11 “truther” Facebook post in Arabic, musing the clock incident would lead to spreading Islam in America, as Breitbart Texas reported. This post contained troubling translated statements that furthered 9/11 conspiracy theories. Mohamed also claimed Islamophobia at the core of his son’s clock making troubles last year, something he appeared to dance around when speaking to reporters at DFW Airport Monday.
Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed said: “As you see, if there is something wrong, America will stand for it and that is what happened. Something was happening to my son. Everybody has a heart, has children, Something is wrong, so they stood for it,” according to the local Fox affiliate.
The teen told reporters he intends to make spending time with friends and family his first priority.
“Ahmed and his family have missed his grandmother, his aunts, uncles, cousins and friends here in Irving and across North Texas very much,” Uncle Aldean Mohamed said. “Ahmed and his nuclear family miss America and their whole family here in America very much.”
The uncle reconfirmed for KDFW 4 that the family still plans to sue for a total of $15 million — $10 million from the City of Irving and $5 million from the school district. In a 10-page demand letter to the City of Irving attorney and a similar 9-page letter to Irving Independent School District attorney last November, the family claimed “Islamophobia” among their clock related incident allegations.It feels good to be back!

Ahmed Mohamed skyrocketed to fame after bringing into MacArthur High School a homemade digital clock-in-a-box that resembled a “hoax bomb.” School officials and police initially detained him based on zero tolerance policies but no charges were ever filed once the situation sorted itself out. Ahmed got three days of out-of-school (OSS) suspension because of the school district’s Student Code of Conduct, which is based on the state’s 1995 Safe Schools Act and Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code. It addresses threats, hoaxes, and perceived or discretionary threats and their harsh consequences. Still, progressive media propped him up as the Islamophobia poster child.
This entire family needs to be waterboarded.
Too bad they didn't have a connection through Istanbul today
$#@! his piece of $#@! family....greedy $#@!ing losers....hope that kid gets his ass kicked repeatedly in school
This morning, NPR in Dallas reported his return to N. Texas. They didn't mention the hoax aspect at all. Not too surprised.
They won't sue. They don't want the actual facts to come out.
So he went and got his Al Qaeda training and now he is back to fix the clock? We report this stuff now, right?
Maybe he'll just go to Qataggy University and get 'Murican edumucation over in his part of the world.
Wonder if he consulted on the Turkish airport dumbbombs.
Some smart Asian kid at the school needs to build a rocket and put his troublemaking ass on it. One way.
Funny to read comments now talking $#@! about the kid from many of the same people that negged me for defending the school when this first came out.
It appears that the family finally filed suit.
The father of Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Muslim student dubbed "Clock Boy" after photos of his arrest at MacArthur High School in Irving went viral, filed a lawsuit Monday accusing Irving ISD, the city of Irving and Mohamed's former principal of violating his son's civil rights.
The Hutchison & Stoy law firm of Fort Worth is representing Mohamed's father, Mohamed Elhassan, in the suit. Lead attorneys Susan Hutchison and Christopher Stoy announced the suit in a news conference at 10 a.m. at the Bank of America Plaza in Dallas. Mohamed and his father were in attendance.
Hutchison said in a written statement that Mohamed's treatment represented a "blatant disregard" for his civil rights.
"In the case of Ahmed Mohamed," the suit says, "we have the opportunity to take a stand for equality and for justice, two things that should prevail above all else."
Representatives for Irving ISD said in a written statement that district administrators are aware of the suit, and district attorneys will respond to the suit's claims after they review it.
"Irving ISD continues to deny violating the student's rights and will respond to claims in accordance with court rules," the statement said. "Because this matter is now in litigation, Irving ISD officials will have no further comment at this time. Irving ISD employees are focused on welcoming 35,000 students for the 2016-2017 academic year and doing everything possible to ensure each student is achieving his or her maximum potential."
Elhassan's suit alleges Mohamed's civil rights were violated last September after Irving police mistook a homemade clock Mohamed had brought to school for a bomb.
Both police and MacArthur High School Principal Daniel $#@!mings interrogated Mohamed about the clock for over an hour and prohibited him from having his parents present.
Irving police eventually arrested Mohamed on charges of possession of a hoax bomb. The charges were dropped, but he was suspended from MacArthur High for three days.
The suit alleges Mohamed was discriminated against based on his race and religion and that his Fourth Amendment rights were violated when he was interrogated by police and $#@!mings.
Mohamed and his family moved to Qatar in October, but the family returned to Irving in June for the summer.
"Will we be faithful to our American principles of equality and freedom or will we let fear and hate prevail, the two biggest evils that will defeat our democracy?" the suit asks. "History tells us that when we have stood tall and proud for equality and freedom, we have grown as a nation. When we have given in to fear and hate, we flounder."
Sir, what the $#@! are you babbling about?"Will we be faithful to our American principles of equality and freedom or will we let fear and hate prevail, the two biggest evils that will defeat our democracy?" the suit asks. "History tells us that when we have stood tall and proud for equality and freedom, we have grown as a nation. When we have given in to fear and hate, we flounder."
They have a couple of high profile cases here.Hutchison & Stoy, PLLC represents Jasmin Hernandez in her Title IX suit against Baylor University for a sexual assault committed by Tevin Elliot, former Baylor football player. The lawsuit is pending in the Western District Court of Texas, Waco Division; Case No. 6:16-CV-00069. To review a copy of the petition, follow this link.
Clock boy needs to stand in back of the $#@!ing line behind all of the minorities who've had their civil rights violated.
Why is Qatar pronounced Cutter? Yet they say Qatarian, not Cutterian.
Can we shoot these Qunts out of a cannon and back to Qatar???
These sub humans appear to have developed a timeline to release information at certain times in attempt to stay relevant. These are the worst kind of attention whores.
See something, say something, get sued.
They're in Qatar, can't blame them for trying to get rich after realizing how poor they are compared to the oil elites LOL.
Family needs to be on the hook for all attorney fees. Then pay for a one way trip out of the country.
