Former state Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell is being sued by University of Michigan student Chris Armstrong for harassment:
The current University of Michigan student body president filed a lawsuit Friday saying a former assistant state attorney general stalked him and inflicted emotional distress last year by posting alleged defamatory statements on a blog as part of a “bizarre personal obsession” that included calling him a Nazi, Ku Klux Klan member and a “radical homosexual activist,” according to a lawsuit.
Chris Armstrong, the first openly gay student body president at U-M, filed the suit against Andrew Shirvell in Washtenaw County Circuit Court. He is asking for more than $25,000 in damages.
“At this point, it’s not about the money,” [Armstrong’s attorney Deborah] Gordon said. “Mr. Shirvell has refused to retract any of his bizarre and untruthful points. We want to set the record straight.”

Here’s hoping Armstrong’s suit prevails. Given the body of evidence against Shirvell, it’s hard to imagine it won’t.
I’m just sayin’…
