LANSING, Mich. (AP) - An assistant state attorney general accused of harassing the gay student assembly president at the University of Michigan is facing a prolonged disciplinary hearing.
Andrew Shirvell went on leave a month ago after national criticism erupted over a blog he wrote characterizing Chris Armstrong as a "racist" and "liar" who promoted a "radical homosexual agenda."
Shirvell's attorney said the disciplinary hearing went for roughly four hours Friday and continues next week.
It's up to Attorney General Mike Cox if and how Shirvell should be disciplined.
Armstrong's attorney has asked the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission to investigate Shirvell's actions.
Shirvell's lawyer has said his client's actions are constitutionally protected.
