A lawsuit has been filed against Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon for sexual harassment.
Wendy Haskill filed the lawsuit in Orange County, Calif. She was hired as Moon’s executive assistant in July by his company Sports 1 Marketing. Haskill is accusing him of requiring her to sleep in the bed with him on road trips, along with slipping a drug into her drink and pulling down her bathing suit top in October, and also grabbing her crotch on a different trip, according to The Washington Post’s Craig Whitlock.
Haskill also alleges that she filed a complaint to the company about Moon’s behavior in October and was demoted, per Whitlock.
A publicist at Moon’s company did not respond to Whitlock’s request for comment.
This is not the first time that Moon has been accused of misconduct towards women. In 1996 he was acquitted on charges that he physically abused his now ex-wife Felicia. She did not want to press charges soon after the incident but was forced to testify, according to a story from the New York Times by Kate Morris.
Also, in 1995 he settled a sexual harassment lawsuit out of court with a then Minnesota Vikings cheerleader, according to a story from the New York Times, by Thomas George.
Moon played the first six seasons of his professional football career in the Canadian Football League, and won championships in two of those seasons. He signed with the Houston Oilers in 1984 and played there through the 1993 season.
Moon then played three seasons with the Vikings, two with the Seattle Seahawks and two with the Kansas City Chiefs. He is currently ninth-all time in passing yards, and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
