Ahmed Mohamed, the "clock kid" who was detained for bringing a project that was mistaken for a bomb to school, is taking his former school district to court.
The lawsuit says the Irving Independent School District violated Mohamed's rights when it detained him without allowing him to speak to a lawyer or parent.
The Mohamed family has since moved to Qatar, and Ahmed said in a press conference he can’t invent or build like he could in his workshop in Irving, Texas.
