Hall of Famer Warren Moon facing lewd allegations in sexual harassment lawsuit

Moon's former executive assistant at his Sports 1 Marketing firm filed a lawsuit against him this week.

A California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by Warren Moon is suing the Hall of Fame quarterback for sexual harassment.

As first reported in the Washington Post, the lawsuit alleges that Moon required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips.

Moon is now an analyst on the Seattle Seahawks' radio network.

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.

Moon eventually got a chance to play for the Houston Oilers in 1984 and would put up huge passing numbers in the "run and shoot" offense.

Slain ex-Yemeni President Saleh buried without solemnities
At least 13 other journalists and media workers are now held hostage in Yemen by armed groups, including the Houthis and al-Qaeda. That seems to have pushed Saleh into flirting with the coalition, ultimately leading to the breakdown of the rebel alliance.

He appealed "that everyone respects the status quo of the city", according to United Nations resolutions. The Holy See has always been against any change in the status of Jerusalem.

Moon is a Hall of Fame quarterback who played parts of 17 seasons in the National Football League with four teams. Haskell alleges that she was then demoted by the firm after more complaints about Moon's sexual advances.

This is not the first claim against Moon, who earned the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year honors in 1989. But his reputation was later marred by scandals involving women. He was arrested later that year following a domestic incident with his wife, Felicia, who accused Moon of slapping and choking her. Moon was later acquitted when his wife told a jury she provoked the fight.

Moon co-founded Sports 1 Marketing in 2010 and serves as its president.

Haskell's attorney, Diane L. Fitzgerald, told The Washington Post her client had chose to go public with the suit.

"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".

Global News called Sports 1 Marketing twice for comment on Wednesday but on both occasions were told nobody was available to speak.
