(CNN) - Michigan Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell - who for nearly six months has blogged about an openly gay college student - has taken a voluntary leave of absence, the state's attorney general's office confirmed to CNN Friday.
The office does not know the length of Shirvell's leave, but says that it will hold a disciplinary hearing upon his return.
