N ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- A judge is set to hold a hearing on whether the openly gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan should be granted a personal protection order against an assistant state attorney general.

Chris Armstrong filed for the PPO last month, citing frequent harassment by Andrew Shirvell over a five-month period.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday afternoon before Judge Nancy Francis at the Washtenaw County Trial Court in Ann Arbor.

The 21-year-old Michigan Student Assembly president says the 30-year-old lawyer heckled him during a speech, showed up at a late-night party at his off-campus house and called the Washington office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, where Armstrong held an internship.

Shirvell went on personal leave last week.

    I think he should be given the PPO because first of all why should it matter that he is gay and a president of of the student assembly.The Assisant AG should not concern himself with it and in my opinion he should be out of office just based on his behavior.

    Would this even make the news if he was not gay?
