Attorneys representing Ahmed Mohamed and his family want an apology and $15 million in damages after his arrest in September.
The former MacArthur High School freshman was accused of bringing an item that looked like a bomb to school. It turned out to be a clock.
The attorneys have sent letters to both the City of Irving and Irving ISD (read below), demanding $10 million and $5 million respectively, for the way the incident was handled earlier this year. They claim 14-year-old Ahmed has suffered severe damages as a result of his interrogation and arrest at the school. They also point the finger at Irving’s Police Chief and Mayor for the way they portrayed Ahmed to the media once the story gained international interest.
