This is an interesting development!

Ahmed Mohamed gained national fame as 'Clock Kid' back in September after being arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb.

After much public outcry, the Texas teen gained some pretty famous supporters — including Barack Obama, who invited him to the White House!

Well, apparently the entire incident isn't over for Ahmed and his family — they're suing the school district and city for MILLIONS!

According to letters from their lawyers, the Mohamed family is demanding $5 million from the Irving Independent School District, and $10 million from the City of Irving, as well as written apologies from the district, and the city's mayor and police chief.

Mohamed's attorneys allege severe psychological trauma for the teen, and describe Ahmed as being:

"…forever associated with arguably the most contentious and divisive socio-political issue of our time."

Whoa!

The letter goes on to get even more pointed:

"Let's face it, if Ahmed's clock were ‘Jennifer's clock,' and if the pencil case were ruby red bedazzled with a clear rhinestone skull and crossbones on the cover, this would never have happened … If you fail to comply with the above demands within 60 days from the date of this letter, you should expect that we will file a civil action addressing the causes of action and events described in this letter," one of the letters stated.

It'll be interesting to see how this lawsuit (or settlement) progresses; Ahmed's family announced they were moving to Qatar almost immediately after the controversy.

Do YOU think the damages are worth $15 million??
