Warren Moon Accused of Sexually Assaulting, Harassing, Drugging Assistant

The woman, who worked for a sports marketing firm where Moon was president, claimed she was hired as the retired quarterback's executive assistant. She alleges that when she expressed reservations about her duties, she was told by Moon that it was "just the way it is", the lawsuit stated.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Orange County Superior Court. 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.

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.

"She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry", Fitzgerald said.

The lawsuit was filed in California against Moon and his company, Sports 1 Marketing, and according to Haskell's lawyer, the defendants have 30 days to respond upon being served. It was revealed on Wednesday that former Minnesota Vikings signal caller Warren Moon is being sued by one of his former female assistants for sexual harassment.

Moon played 17 seasons in the National Football League, playing for the Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City and Houston Oilers.

Representatives for Dunham didn't immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday. He has apologized for his behaviour with women but denied having non-consensual sex.

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.

Moon has had legal trouble following incidents involving women in the past.

Moon himself has a history of accusations when it comes to both sexual harassment and domestic violence.

In 1989, he received the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his charitable works and excellence on the field.

The Seahawks have accepted announcer Warren Moon's request to take a leave from his position.

Whitlock's piece also notes that Moon has been in trouble with the law before, including a sexual harassment lawsuit from a Vikings' cheerleader alleging he offered to pay her for sex in 1995 (settled out of court), a later 1995 arrest and assault charges after his then-wife said he slapped and choked her (he was acquitted after she testified she provoked the fight; they later divorced in 2001), and a 2007 drunk driving charge (reduced to negligent driving, led to community service).
