Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback accused of sexual harassment

Seahawks broadcaster and former Husky star Warren Moon sued for sexual harassment

Warren Moon, a former Edmonton Eskimos star who quarterbacked the team to five Grey Cup championships in the 1970s and 1980s, is facing allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct in a civil lawsuit filed this week by a woman who worked for a sports marketing firm that lists him as its president.

The lawsuit against the 61-year-old Moon was filed Monday in Orange County (Calif.) Superior Court. He threw for 49,325 yards and 291 touchdowns in the regular season and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2006. According to Haskell, she was required to share a room and sleep in the same bed as Moon on all business trips. The woman claimed she traveled with him 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.

In addition, Chris Gethard, host of the " Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People " podcast, will make a cameo appearance. The beloved X-Men character will headline Marvel's first-ever scripted podcast to be titled WOLVERINE: THE LONG NIGHT .

Haskell, 32, started working for Moon's Sports 1 Marketing firm, which was co-founded by Moon in 2010, in July but claims she was demoted in October for complaining about his unwanted advances. A Seahawks spokesperson released a statement on their Twitter account Wednesday night saying that they've accepted Moon's request for a leave of absence.

After beginning his career in the CFL and then playing 12 years for the Oilers and Vikings, he spent the 1997 and 1998 seasons with the Seahawks before finishing up his playing career with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2000. In 1995, he was sued by a Minnesota Vikings cheerleader for sexual harassment and in the same year, he was arrested for physically abusing his wife.

Moon himself has a history of accusations when it comes to both sexual harassment and domestic violence. The couple has been divorced since 2001.

Haskell has asked for a jury trial against Moon, who now works for the Seahawks' official radio network.

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 says in the lawsuit that "Moon had a dark and twisted side that commanded far more than just executive assistant services from his newly hired employee".
