The plaintiff's resignation was not voluntary, since the alternative was termination and it appeared that the employer's mind was made up.
The anti-fraternization policy is not subject to heightened scrutiny, since it didn't prevent the plaintiff from getting married to the man of her choice, and it didn't foreclose her employment anywhere else. The policy is upheld under the rational basis standard.
The fact that the plaintiff had conceived a child with the man before his felony conviction is not discussed. See: Wolford v. Angelone, 38 F.Supp.2d 452 (W.D.Va. 1999).
