Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon sued for sex harassment

Moon's unseemly mid-90s period is back in the news this week, as a woman who worked for a sports marketing firm Moon owns has accused him of repeated unwanted sexual advances, as reported by the Washington Post.

A representative from Moon's company did not immediately respond to Reuters when asked to comment on the allegations against the 61-year-old former quarterback. In 1994, Moon was sued by a Vikings cheerleader, who claimed the Pro Bowl quarterback had offered her money for sex, and come to a bar where she worked to hit on her. Moon said the claims were untrue, but settled the lawsuit out of court. Haskell says she was demoted after making the complaints.

Moon "recognizes that his duties as a commentator on the Seattle Seahawks radio network will be impacted as he defends himself against these claims", Fears said.

"Warren Moon has yet to be served with the lawsuit filed by Wendy Haskell, but he is aware of the claims contained in it", attorney Daniel Fears said in a statement. The lawsuit alleges that Haskell was forced to sleep in the same bed with Moon on business trips while wearing lingerie. The lawsuit alleges that Moon acknowledged drugging Haskell because he thought she wasn't "having fun".

According to the lawsuit, Haskell was hired as an executive assistant to Moon in the summer of 2017.

Haskell told The Washington Post through her attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald, that she wishes to have her name made public.

"Whenever [the assistant] expressed reservations about these outrageous "job duties, ' Moon insisted this was "just the way it is, ' and threatened [the assistant] that unless she was 'comfortable" with him, he'd 'find someone else who was.' Moon insisted these 'requirements" were part of the job, and made clear that [the assistant]'s employment depended on her acceptance and compliance with Moon's lascivious behavior, demands and orders". In July of that year, Moon was arrested in Texas after the quarterback's wife, Felicia, told police he had slapped and choked her in their Houston-area mansion. The case went to trial, and Moon was acquitted when his wife testified she had initiated the violence.

Moon threw for 49,325 yards and 291 touchdowns in the regular season and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006. He then ventured to the National Football League and made nine Pro Bowls, throwing for 49,325 yards, 291 touchdowns and 233 interceptions in 17 National Football League seasons with the Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs and Seahawks. He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2001. According to the team's statement, former Seahawks players Brock Huard and Dave Wyman will replace Moon indefinitely. She also accused Moon of grabbing her crotch this year during a trip to Seattle.
