Court upholds judgement against former Michigan assistant attorney general
The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a judgment against Andrew Shirvell for stalking and harassing a gay University of Michigan student.
The appeals court knocked $500,000 off the judgment. It said one the claims was a duplicate of other allegations against Shirvell, but Shirvell still owes $3.5 million.
Shirvell ran a harassment campaign against the U of M's first openly gay student body president while he was employed as an assistant state attorney general. He was eventually fired from his job.
The sixth circuit also upheld professional sanctions against Shirvell.
