A hearing to determine whether Michigan assistant district attorney Andrew Shirvell can be barred from stalking and harassing a student has been postponed until October 25.
University of Michigan student government president Christopher Armstrong filed a protection order against Shirvell in September. The hearing was scheduled to take place Monday afternoon, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Shirvell ran a blog (which is no longer available) about Armstrong, who has campaigned to cap tuition hikes, expand gender-neutral housing for transgender students, and mitigate underage drinking by keeping dining halls open later.
Shirvell has described Armstrong as a "Nazi-like" recruiter for "the cult that is homosexuality." He also claims Armstrong aims "to promote the radical homosexual agenda at the University of Michigan and to use his position to promote that cause."
Since his actions were exposed, it was announced last week that Shirvell would take a leave of absence from office. He also faces a disciplinary hearing upon returning to his job.
