He’s also suing Ben Shapiro and Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne.
“Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed and his family have filed a defamation lawsuit against eight eight defendants, including Glenn Beck and Fox News. The Dallas Morning News Reports:
Mohamed Mohamed sued on behalf of himself and his son, arguing that commentators and media outlets were responsible for libelous statements after his son’s arrest in 2015.
“The Mohamed family are peaceful Muslims who have been falsely accused of being terrorists and engaging in a jihad,” the suit states. “The correction must also be made that the arrest and suspension of Ahmed Mohamed was not a stunt and it was not pre-planned, staged or engineered by anyone, including [his father].”
The lawsuit comes a month after the Mohamed family announced a federal lawsuit against the city of Irving and its school district, alleging that the boy’s rights were violated after Irving police mistook his homemade clock for a bomb.
The suit also names The Blaze, Glenn Beck, Center for Security Policy, Jim Hanson, Fox Television Stations, LLC, Ben Ferguson, Ben Shapiro and Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne.
