Shirvelling has its consequences … and its price
Over the past two years, I’ve been following the story of former assistant Attorney General and confirmed stalking homophobe Andrew Shirvell as he made a mockery of our legal system. To recap, he was stalking University of Michigan student body president, Chris Armstrong, posting offensively Photoshopped images on an anti-Armstrong website, writing defamatory things about Armstrong (an openly gay man) and conducting one-man protests outside the home of Shirvell and his friends and family. It got so bad the Shirvell was eventually banned from campus.
Armstrong obtained a personal protection order from Shirvell. He asked for a new judge because the judge he had was the sister of someone who didn’t like him. That was denied. He was fired from his Asst. AG job and then counter-sued Armstrong for that. He tried to have his deposition sealed but was denied that. Armstrong eventually sued him.
Yesterday, a jury awarded Armstrong $4.5 million.
