Warren Moon Sued For Sexual Assault ... Allegedly Grabbed Asst.'s Crotch

A California woman has filed a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment and battery against former Edmonton Eskimos star quarterback Warren Moon.

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.

Originally reported by The Washington Post, Haskell's lawsuit claims Moon, 61, required the plaintiff to wear certain types of underwear and share a bed with him on business trips. When he retired in 2000, he held the record for most passing yards in history, NFL and CFL combined, and is one of the few men in both leagues' Hall of Fame.

Soon after she began her employment, Moon demanded Ms. Haskell submit to a variety of unnerving sexual and perverse controlling arrangements, including sleeping in the same bed with him on all business trips, providing him unfettered access to the bathroom every time she showered, wearing skimpy lingerie while in the obligatory single room, obtaining prior approval for her wardrobe, and being subjected to continuous unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances.
She was hired as Moon's executive assistant in July by his company Sports 1 Marketing.

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.

Hours after it was noted that Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and current Seattle Seahawks broadcaster Warren Moon was being sued for sexual harassment, the organization has granted Moon a leave of absence.

This is not the first time that Moon has been accused of misconduct towards women. The case was settled out of court days later.

Just two months later, Moon's then-wife, Felicia, called the police on him after she said he slapped and choked her in their Houston home. In 1996 he was acquitted on charges that he physically abused his now ex-wife Felicia. The couple divorced in 2001.

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.
