Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed’s time is up, as one Twitter user put it.

“@Kirt Schlichter cleaned his clock,” Bored_In_America posted.

Schlichter represented conservative columnist Ben Shapiro against Mohamed’s 2016 defamation lawsuit, which demanded apologies and retractions and damages from folks who criticized the situation the teen created at his Texas school.

Mohamed, then 14, brought a ticking clock to class at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas that looked suspiciously like a bomb, and repeatedly refused teachers’ instructions to put it away. A teacher reported the device and Mohamed was questioned about it and suspended, but not charged with a crime.

President Obama reached out to the Muslim teen on Twitter to praise the boy for his “cool clock” and invite him to the White House as social justice warriors raged over alleged racial profiling and Islamophobia.

Mohamed later met with the president at a White House Astronomy Night, as well as other world leaders like Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir, and his family eventually moved to Qatar. The family also filed multi-million dollar racial discrimination lawsuits against the city, school, and local officials, as well as defamation lawsuits against Shapiro and others who criticized the incident.

Shapiro commented on Fox News that Ahmed’s meeting with Obama at a White House Astronomy Night was “a bit of a downgrade” from the “star-studded event we expected between the president and Ahmed Mohamed where the president was going to knight him, give him the Order of Merit and then declare him the greatest scientist since Isaac Newton,” Twitchy reports.

All of the cases were dismissed. But the Mohammeds appealed the suit against Shapiro and it faced a final three-hour hearing on Wednesday.

“So much for the Clock Boy case – we just destroyed them again on appeal!” Shapiro posted to Twitter. “Well done, @KurtSchlichter!”

Schlichter tweeted that the Court of Appeals “drove a stake through its heart.”

“That mushroom cloud over Texas is Clockboy’s case against @benshapiro going bye-bye,” Schlichter posted with an atomic bomb GIF. “We won the appeal. So did the principle of free speech. They lost.”

Twitter was loving it.

“It was only a matter of time,” Trenton Hettlinger wrote.

“I guess Clock Boy’s 15 minutes are up,” Bradley Mattice posted.
