Chris Armstrong on Friday filed a misconduct complaint with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission against Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Armstrong is the openly gay president of the Michigan Student Assembly at the University of Michigan, who Shirvell has attacked at his now private blog Chris Armstrong Watch.

The move comes after Armstrong withdrew his request for a personal protection order against Shirvell, which prompted the civil servant to threaten the school if it does not end its campus ban against him.

According to the complaint, Shirvell violated the profession's code of conduct when he “repeatedly harassed and defamed Armstrong in a relentless, six-month campaign of lies, dishonesty, heckling, hate speech, and even job interference.”

Shirvell led protests against Armstrong at his home and at university events. At his blog the official accused Armstrong of preying on impressionable freshman, of being “Satan's representative on the student assembly,” and labeled Armstrong a Nazi, a racist, a liar and an elitist.

Shirvell made “obviously false, disgusting, and utterly outlandish allegations about Armstrong's lifestyle and personal behavior and by trying to get Armstrong ousted from a summer internship on Capitol Hill,” the filing says.

Armstrong's complaint asks for an investigation, discipline and possible disbarment.

The case attracted nationwide attention when Shirvell appeared on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 defending his right to campaign against Armstrong's “radical homosexual agenda.”

Shirvell, who is currently on a leave of absence, faces a November 5 disciplinary hearing.
