Family of US Muslim teen in ‘clockbomb’ case seeks $15M

IRVING, Texas: 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.
