Now that we’re up to speed, here’s the latest developments:
The lawsuit, filed Monday by Ahmed’s father, Mohamed Elhassen Mohamed, maintains that Ahmed’s civil rights were violated by the Irving Independent School District, MacArthur High School Principal Daniel Cummings and the city of Irving, near Dallas.
The suit said Ahmed’s rights were “violated in contravention of the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments” of the U.S. Constitution. It cites “a clear pattern of discrimination based upon race as well as discrimination based upon religion” in the school district.
The suit also says the state of Texas, including the school district, “has a history of discrimination against Muslims in Texas curriculum and schools.”
