State appeals judge's ruling
granting Shirvell benefits

Former Asst. AG
says he deserves
unemployment
By PETER SHAHIN
Daily StaffReporter
In a motion filed yesterday,
state officials asked an Ingham
County judge to reconsider her

recent decision to grant unem-
ployment benefits to Andrew,
Shirvell, a former Michigan
assistant attorney general who
was accused of stalking and
harassing Chris Armstrong, the
first openly gay president of the
University's student govern-
ment.
Shirvell's employment was
officially terminated by the
state in 2012 after a long leave

of absence resulting from his
harassment of Armstrong.
Beginning in 2010, Shirvell
operated a blog tracking the
student leader's movements
and warning readers about his
"radical homosexual agenda."
The blog included images of a
swastika adorned rainbow flag
pointing at Armstrong's face.
Shirvell became a media sen-

Minutes not posted
since Sept. 25
assembly meeting
By AMRUTHA SIVAKUMAR
For the Daily
As the semester passes the
halfway point, the Central Stu-
dent Government has not public-

ly released resolutions, meeting
minutes or agendas from the past
three months in a manner con-
sistent with its governing docu-
ments.
The minutes were last pub-
lished on Sept. 25, and CSG has
neglected to upload information
from five, meetings since that
date.
Article II of the CSG Consti-
tutionr states that the Assem-

bly "shall produce, publish, and
maintain an Assembly Register
as an account of all Assembly
proceedings." The register is
ordained to include "minutes,
attendance, reports, recorded
votes, and resolutions."
Additionally, Article II of the
Compiled Code, a document

mittees of the CSG, further man-

More than 675 'U'
students, faculty
served in military
By ARIANA ASAAF
For the Daily
Six World War II veterans,
proudly wearing baseball caps
and leather jackets adorned
with patches, spoke about serv-
ing in the U.S. military and

returning from service at a Vet-
erans Day event Tuesday eve-
ning.
The event, hosted by the
University's Student Veterans
Assistance Program, was part
of Veterans Week 2012, a pro-
gram started five years ago to
showcase, honor and support
veterans affiliated with the
University.
At the event, the panelists
each gave detailed recounts of
their experiences at war.

Bob Davis, one of the speak-
ers, said he was drafted in 1943
after his freshman year at the
University. On his first day of
combat in Germany, he was
wounded and spent the next 90
days in a hospital, but remained
with his division until the end
of the war. After he was dis-
charged, he looked into continu-
ing his education by contacting
an old roommate, who told him
they would "put a bed in the
