IRVING, Texas (AP) – A suburban Dallas school district is suing the state of Texas to prevent the release of details of a federal investigation into the arrest of a
student who brought a homemade clock to class that was seen as a possible bomb.
The Texas attorney general’s office earlier this month ordered the Irving school district to provide a copy of the Department of Justice letter to the Dallas Morning News.
Instead, the district sued to prevent the release of the multi-page letter on Thursday.
The district has been turning over sealed documents to comply with the investigation into the September arrest of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed. A charge against him was later dropped.
The teen made the clock and brought it to class to show a teacher.
