ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- The openly gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan who claims he's been frequently harassed by an assistant state attorney general is due in court.
Twenty-one-year-old Chris Armstrong is scheduled to appear Monday for a personal protection order hearing in Washtenaw County Trial Court in Ann Arbor. Armstrong earlier this month requested the order against Andrew Shirvell, claiming the 30-year-old lawyer frequently harassed him over a five-month period.
Shirvell started a blog in April that regularly lambasted Armstrong as a racist with a "radical homosexual agenda." Shirvell remains on personal leave.
The Michigan Civil Rights Commission has condemned Shirvell's behavior.
