Warren Moon Accused of Sexually Assaulting, Harassing, Drugging Assistant

Former Seattle Seahawks and Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon is being sued for sexual harassment according to a report

After leading the University of Washington to a Rose Bowl victory in 1978, Moon played six years in the Canadian Football League, followed by 17 seasons in the National Football League.

Former Houston Oilers quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon is being sued for sexual harassment.

"The lawsuit, filed Monday in Orange County, California, also alleges that Moon, 61, committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman's crotch during a trip to Seattle this year", The Times' report continued.

Moon is an employee of the Seattle Seahawks, whose games are broadcast on 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio. He's best known for putting up record passing numbers with the then Houston Oilers from 1984-1993, but also starred for Minnesota, Seattle and Kansas City during a career that eventually landed him in Canton back in 2006.

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. According to the lawsuit, Haskell was Moon's executive assistant and traveled with him on numerous business trips.

Once named NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year, Moon's reputation has since taken a major hit. The case was settled out of court days later.

Deadline reports that he's already been working alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda to score The Little Mermaid's live-action version. Should this go through, this would be another film that he and Lin-Manuel Miranda will have worked on together.

Moon was accused of striking his then wife, Felicia Moon, on the head with an open hand and choking her to the point that she nearly lost consciousness before she escaped from the couple's home in July 1995. After Moon was arrested, he called his reaction to their argument a "tremendous mistake".

Authorities in Texas charged Moon with assault anyway, but he was acquitted by a jury after his wife testified that she had provoked the fight. Moon and his wife divorced in 2001.

If anyone has been living under a rock recently, the amount of notable people being accused of sexual harassment has seen a dramatic increase in the past few months.

Haskell's attorney told The Washington Post that her client wanted her name to be public.

When Haskell first complained to Moon about his business trip demands, he said her job depended on her compliance and that his assistant before her had "accepted the same arrangement", according to the lawsuit. "I think she was scared", she said. "She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of perverse protocol".
