The former star QB has been accused of sexual harassment in a lawsuit.
Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has been accused of sexual harassment in a lawsuit filed by his former assistant.
Moon, 61, allegedly used to make his former assistant wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips. He’s also accused of drugging her drink, grabbing her crotch and taking off her bathing suit.
The lawsuit was filed by Wendy Haskell, 32, who previously served as Moon’s assistant at his sports marketing company, Sports 1 Marketing, in Irvine, Calif.
The Washington Post has the details on the lawsuit:
The plaintiff, Wendy Haskell, 32, was hired as Moon’s executive assistant in July and traveled with him on a weekly basis for speaking engagements, charity events and personal appearances, according to the lawsuit. She alleges that she was demoted by the firm in October after she complained about Moon’s sexual advances.
Moon co-founded Sports 1 Marketing in 2010 and serves as its president.
According to the new lawsuit, Moon required Haskell to stay in his hotel room during business trips, sleep in the same bed and wear “skimpy thong lingerie bottoms” as nightclothes. When she protested, he replied that she had to comply to keep her job and said that “his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement,” the lawsuit states.
Moon, a California native, starred collegiately at Washington before going on to play in the CFL and the NFL. He was a 9-time Pro Bowler in the NFL and a 5-time Grey Cup champion in the CFL. Moon was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
