Sexual harassment lawsuit filed against CFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon

Sexual harassment lawsuit filed against CFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon

A woman filed a lawsuit in Orange County, California, alleging Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon sexually harassed her, the Washington Post's Craig Whitlock reported Wednesday. The lawsuit also said Moon claimed "his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement" and Haskell had to play along to keep her job. He is now ninth-all time in passing yards, and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006. It also includes that Moon allegedly pulled off Haskell's bathing suit and slipped a drug in her drink during a trip to Mexico in October. Her job, which she claimed she was demoted from after complaining about Moon's misconduct, required her to travel with Moon to events on a regular basis.

Neither Sports 1 Marketing, of which Mr. Moon is the president, nor the Seattle Seahawks, for whom Mr. Moon is a broadcaster, had immediate comment.

After beginning his career in the CFL and then playing 12 years for the Oilers and Vikings, he spent the 1997 and 1998 seasons with the Seahawks before finishing up his playing career with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2000.

After a sterling career at the University of Washington, Moon became a pro football legend for his productivity as well as his longevity.

His Edmonton Eskimos won consecutive five Grey Cups and though his USA teams never won a title, he was named to nine Pro Bowls and set several single-season passing records in a less pass-happy era than now.

Two months after that, Moon was arrested in Texas after the quarterback's wife, Felicia, told police that he had slapped and choked her in their mansion near Houston.

The full lawsuit, which was obtained by USA Today, made multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Moon. The couple divorced in 2001.

The latest disturbing sexual harassment allegations are against famed former NCAA, CFL and National Football League quarterback and current Seattle Seahawks' broadcaster Warren Moon (seen above during agent Leigh Steinberg's 2017 Super Bowl party).

The Canadian Press does not normally name alleged victims of sexual assault, but Fitzgerald & Isaacson, the law firm representing Haskell, said its client had agreed to go public.

She says in the lawsuit that "Moon had a dark and twisted side that commanded far more than just executive assistant services from his newly hired employee".
