ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WKOW) -- The openly gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan has sued a former assistant state attorney general on charges of stalking and causing emotional distress.
Chris Armstrong filed the suit against Andrew Shirvell on Friday at a Michigan Circuit Court.
Armstrong's attorney says in the complaint that Shirvell displayed a "bizarre personal obsession" with Armstrong through critical blog and Facebook posts in which he claimed Armstrong was pushing a "radical homosexual agenda."
Shirvell told The Associated Press Wednesday he had no comment.
Armstrong is asking for more than $25,000 in damages.
Shirvell was fired by the state in December after being accused of harassing Armstrong.
