Former Houston Oiler Warren Moon accused of sexual harassment in lawsuit

Former Houston Oilers quarterback Warren Moon is accused of sexually harassment and assault by his executive assistant in a lawsuit

A woman in California has made some serious allegations against Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon in a lawsuit that was filed on Wednesday. He is now ninth-all time in passing yards, and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006. It also reports the lawsuit alleges Moon grabbed the woman's crotch during a trip to Seattle and that he pulled her bathing suit off after slipping a drug into her drink while on a trip to Mexico. Her job, which she claimed she was demoted from after complaining about Moon's misconduct, required her to travel with Moon to events on a regular basis.

Moon, 61, is now the color commentator for Seahawks games on the team's radio network. She alleges that she reported Moon's alleged sexual harassment to Sports 1 Marketing CEO David Meltzer.

Moon, who won a Rose Bowl with the University of Washington and then played 17 seasons in the National Football League before retiring in 2000, was sued in 1995 by a Vikings cheerleader who accused him of sexual assault.

As an Eskimo, Moon won two Grey Cup MVP awards and became the first professional football player to pass for 5,000 yards in 1982.

He starred for the Houston Oilers from 1984 to 1993, when he set numerous passing records, and also played for the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs during his long career before retiring in 2000 at age 44.


He was arrested in 1995 after his wife, Felicia, told police that he slapped and choked her in their Houston home.

Hours after it was noted that Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and current Seattle Seahawks broadcaster Warren Moon was being sued for sexual harassment, the organization has granted Moon a leave of absence. Moon was acquitted of the charges after a jury spent less than a half-hour deliberating in 1996.

Earlier in the same year, a Vikings cheerleader accused him sexual harassment in a case that was settled out of court.

"She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry", Fitzgerald added. The couple divorced in 2001.

"Whenever Ms. Haskell expressed reservations about these outrageous "job duties", Moon insisted this was "just the way it is", and threatened Ms. Haskell that unless she was "comfortable" with him, he'd "find someone else who was".
