Wendy Haskell filed a lawsuit in California against Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon, accusing him of making unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances toward her at Sports 1 Marketing, where she is an assistant.

Additionally the lawsuit claims that Moon drugged Haskell's drink during a business trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and that he admitted to doing it, because he thought she wasn't "having fun". In a separate trip to Mexico, in October, the 61-year-old former athlete allegedly removed the plaintiff's bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink, it has been reported.

Moon's attorney Daid Fears said in a statement: "Mr. Moon denies the claims by Ms. Haskell".

Haskell told the Washington post that she wanted her identity made public and claims that moon made repeated sexual advances toward her along with unusual requests. "Mr. Moon contends these claims are meritless, and he has every intention to vigorously defend himself in court". Moon "recognizes that his duties as a commentator on the Seattle Seahawks radio network will be impacted as he defends himself against these claims", Fears said.

The team announced that day it had "accepted Warren Moon's request for a leave of absence as the club's radio analyst". In the filing, Haskell alleges that Moon required her to "wear only lingerie" any time she was in their shared hotel room on business trips, and if she resisted this directive, he "became aggressive even to the extent of pulling her shorts down". She frequently travelled with Moon for speaking engagements, charity events and other meetings, according to the lawsuit.

In a phone interview with The Seattle Times Thursday afternoon, Haskell's attorney Diana Fitzgerald said Sports 1 Marketing, the company Moon founded and Haskell was employed at, has been served with the complaint and that service had been attempted on Moon. Her attorney says the unwanted treatment started nearly from the time she began working for the company.

Moon threw for 49,325 yards and 291 touchdowns in the regular season and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006.

The former University of Washington star led the team to a 1978 Rose Bowl victory.

After winning five Grey Cups in the Canadian Football League, Moon moved on to the NFL for a 17-year career that included stints with the Houston Oilers, Vikings, Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.

Haskell's attorney, Diane L. Fitzgerald, told The Washington Post her client had made a decision to go public with the suit. "She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of perverse protocol".
