Hall of Famer Warren Moon accused of sexual assault
Add Warren Moon to the long list of high-profile individuals being put in the spotlight for sexual harassment. According to a lawsuit filed in Orange County, Florida, the retired quarterback and current Seahawks analyst is accused of grabbing the crotch of an employee during a visit to Seattle earlier in the year. Wendy Haskell, the plaintiff, was working as an executive assistant for Moon's Sports 1 Marketing company at the time.
In her suit, Haskell also claims that Moon drugged and took off her bathing suit while on another trip to Mexico. She alleges that Moon made her wear thong underwear and share his bed with her on several business trips. After approaching her superiors to report the activity, she was subsequently demoted in the company.
Moon, who had been working as an analyst for the Seahawks' radio station, took a leave of absence following the lawsuit. This isn't the first time he's been in hot water. In 1994, he settled a lawsuit brought by a Vikings cheerleader that accused him of sexual harassment and two years later was found not guilty of spousal abuse in a trial with his then-wife, Felicia. In that trial, Felicia testified that she had been the aggressor in the argument, and that Warren had only acted in self-defense.
