Warren Moon requests leave of absence from Seahawks radio broadcast

Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon was slapped with a lawsuit this week alleging he sexually harassed and committed sexual battery against a female employee at his sports marketing firm this year. "Moon insisted these "requirements" were part of the job, and made clear that Ms. Haskell's employment depended on her acceptance and compliance with Moon's lascivious behavior, demands and orders".

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

The lawsuit also accuses Moon of grabbing Haskell's crotch while on a trip in Seattle this year, as well as drugging her and pulling off her bathing suit on a separate occasion in Mexico in October.

The lawsuit says that, on October 6, Haskell told Moon that "while she loved working at S1M, she was very uncomfortable with the travel sleeping arrangements and shower protocol".

This is not the first time that Moon has been accused of misconduct towards women.

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.

He has worked for the Seahawks broadcast since 2004. Moon is now a broadcaster for the Seattle Seahawks. He is best known for his time quarterbacking the high-scoring "run-and-shoot" era of the Houston Oilers from 1984-93. He was charged with assault and eventually acquitted by a jury after Felicia stood by him during the trial.

Haskell's attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald, told the Washington Post that her client didn't report anything to police at the time because she was probably "scared".

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

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. "She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of perverse protocol".
