Last year, Pratt was dismissed on Valentine's Day after an alleged incident with another student.

ASU's policy required him to disclose the relationship and immediately remove himself from a position of academic authority over the student.

He kept telephoning and texting her, according to the suit.

He told colleagues in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice about the relationship.

If the relationship goes bad, things can quickly sour.

The student's reputation can be damaged if word gets out to other faculty.

Pratt denied having an amorous relationship with the unnamed student, according to university documents.

Kunzi's federal lawsuit was settled out of court with Pratt, shortly after she asked the court to dismiss the regents and another party.

Those incidents have led to an effort to strengthen the policies.

On Monday, ASU's University Senate, which represents the faculty, voted on a proposal that will be more restrictive than the current policy, which now prohibits faculty from dating students in their classes or students they supervise or evaluate.

"So that's the sanction and so the sanction is very harsh."Crow added the allegation has to be proven.
