Andrew Shirvell lost his law license Thursday in a misconduct case. It was related to his public hostility for a gay student leader at the University of Michigan.
His disbarment was ordered by a panel at the Attorney Discipline Board.
Shirvell said he was exercising free-speech rights but the discipline board says his motive was “dishonest or selfish,” not careless.
In 2012 a jury ordered Shirvell to pay $4.5 million to Armstrong.
He can appeal to the full board.
