Christopher Armstrong is victorious. On Thursday, a U.S. District Court jury awarded the University of Michigan gay student body president $4.5 million. Armstrong's lawsuit came against former Michigan assistant attorney general Andrew Shirvell, who posted about him in an anti-gay blog; Shirvell accused accused him of enticing minors with alcohol and recruiting people to become homosexual. Armstrong claimed he suffered distress.
"I'm just incredibly humbled by what happened today," Armstrong told The Associated Press. "This is truly a victory — not just for myself, but for a lot of other kids out there."
