A jury has found in favor of a gay University of Michigan student body president in his lawsuit against former Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shirvell.
Christopher Armstrong's attorney Deborah Gordon says a jury in U.S. District court awarded her client $4.5 million Thursday in his case against Andrew Shirvell. Armstrong accused Shirvell of defamation and causing the student emotional distress on an anti-gay blog, in Facebook posts and during visits to the Ann Arbor campus...
Armstrong has offered to drop the suit if Shirvell apologized.
This is certainly relevant to the University, but, in general, we can't have nice things. Thread locked to prevent overnight not good things. [zl]
