NFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon accused of sexual harassment

Warren Moon walk along the sideline prior to an NFL football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale Ariz. Hall of Fame quarterback Moon has been accused of sexual harassment by

Both a publicist from Moon's marketing company and the Seahawks, declined to comment on the suit.

Though Moon has been accused of sexual misconduct and domestic abuse before, this is the first time he has gone under the spotlight in the post-Weinstein era of hyper-awareness towards powerful men sexually harassing and assaulting women.

Now a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks, the 61-year-old Moon played 17 seasons in the NFL.

Wendy Haskell, who was hired as an executive assistant to Moon in the summer, traveled with him on weekly speaking engagements, charity events and personal appearances, according to a lawsuit filed in Orange County, Calif., on Monday and obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

After the trip, Haskell says in her lawsuit that she was demoted to a position where she made "significantly" less money, and suffered emotional distress and humiliation at work.

Moon, 61, was involved in a handful of controversies during his National Football League playing days with the Houston Oilers (now the Titans), where he starred as quarterback from 1984-93, and with the Vikings, Seahawks and Chiefs before retiring in 2000.

Moon, 61, has a history of off-field issues with women.

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.

According to the new lawsuit, Moon required Haskell to stay in his hotel room during business trips, sleep in the same bed and wear "skimpy thong lingerie bottoms" as nightclothes.

The report also mentioned that this is not the first time the former quarterback has been accused of something like this as he was sued by a Vikings cheerleader for sexual harassment back in 1995 after she accused him of offering to give her cash in exchange for sex. He was acquitted in that case after his wife said she provoked him, though court records dug up during the course of that trial found that she'd previously filed a restraining order against him and contended he attacked her three times. The couple divorced in 2001.

"We have no comment on this matter", the Edmonton Eskimos said in an email to Global News responding to a request for comment on the allegations.
