IRVING, TX --  Almost a year after Ahmed Mohamed, also known as “Clock Boy,” was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, a lawsuit was filed on Monday.

The law firm Hutchison and Stoy filed the suit on behalf of Ahmed’s family against the Irving school district, the principal and the City of Irving.

The lawsuit says:

"The school 'gets a ’D’ for Anti-Muslim sentiment and politicizing history, it gets an 'F' for continuing a long tradition of racial disparity in student discipline.'

Basically, they say Ahmed's civil rights were violated and he was discriminated against because of race and religion. The suit also says Ahmed was drilled for about an hour by police and Principal Daniel Cummings before his parents were even at the scene.  They say that's a clear violation of his Fourth Amendment rights.

The school district has released a statement saying:

"Irving ISD continues to deny violating the student's rights and will respond to claims in accordance with court rules."

Yeah, nearly a year since the incident, the clock's still ticking on how it's all going to wrap up.
