Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Texas high school student who was arrested after teachers mistaked his homemade clock for a bomb, is asking for $15 million in damages. His attorney wrote two letters—one asking the city for $10 million and another asking the school district for $5 million—and in both letters, threatened a civil suit if the demands are not met. As with most of these types of suits, they are probably not expecting to get the full $15 million, but still, that's a lot of moolah.
