Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon sued for sexual harassment

She also claimed in the lawsuit that Moon drugged her drink during a business trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. "Brock Huard and Dave Wyman will assume the role of radio analyst indefinitely".

Plaintiff Wendy Haskell, 32, who gave permission for the Post to publicly identify her, was hired as Moon's executive assistant last July and traveled with him to speaking engagements, personal appearances and charity events. The lawsuit alleges that Haskell was forced to sleep in the same bed with Moon on business trips while wearing lingerie. On the same trip, according to the lawsuit, Moon pulled off Haskell's bathing suit while on the beach, despite her pleas with him to stop. (The team declined immediate comment to The Seattle Times Wednesday.) He's also worked with Fox, Westwood One, and other broadcasters.

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.

Moon was Pac-8 co-Player of the Year in 1977 when he led the Huskies to the conference title and a win over MI in the Rose Bowl, in which he was MVP.

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

But the nine-time pro-bowl player who played pro football in both the Canadian and American leagues is denying the charges, Pro Football Talk reports.

In May 1995, a Vikings cheerleader sued Moon and accused him of sexual harassment, alleging that he offered her cash for sex.

Moon was accused of striking his then wife, Felicia Moon, on the head with an open hand and choking her to the point that she nearly lost consciousness before she escaped from the couple's home in July 1995. Authorities charged Moon, anyway, but Moon was acquitted after Felicia testified she provoked the scuffle. The couple divorced in 2001. Moon insisted she would lose her job if she did not comply and that his former assistant "accepted the same arrangement", the lawsuit claims.

Haskell's attorney, Diane L. Fitzgerald, told The Washington Post her client had chose to go public with the suit. The Washington Post does not typically name alleged victims of sexual assault, but Fitzgerald said her client had agreed to go public.

"She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry", Fitzgerald told the newspaper. "She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of perverse protocol".
