Remember Andrew Shirvell, the former Michigan Assistant Attorney General fired for harassing Chris Armstrong, the student body president of the University of Michigan? The stalker has countersued Armstrong now claiming he's the victim of "a homosexual activist agenda." Because, you know, it's not something that he did, it was those dirty queers!
[Shirvell] filed a number of counterclaims, claiming that as a result of Armstrong's statements to the media and his "course of conduct" towards Shirvell, Shirvell was "improperly fired" from his position in the Michigan Attorney General's office. He also claims that Armstrong's lawyer conspired with the AG's office to get him fired.
In the complaint, Shirvell says he "has suffered significant loss of income, future earnings, and the right to enjoyment of his livelihood as well as emotional distress, humiliation, mortification, embarrassment, sleeplessness, anxiety, and depression as the result of Plaintiff?s tortious conduct."
I wonder if since he's playing the "emotional distress" card, he will admit liability on his part for harassing Armstrong. Nah. That's not what Jeebus would do, is it? Jeebus would totally have gone to the small claims Pharisees to claim "loss of income" if some widow asked for a shekel. (img src)
