In her role as Moon's personal assistant, Haskell says she traveled with Moon on a weekly basis for speaking engagements and charity events.

A lawsuit has been filed against Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon for sexual harassment.

Moon's publicist did not respond to phone calls inquiring about the lawsuit, while Haskall declined to comment but agreed to go public with her name through her attorney, according to the report.

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. Haskill is accusing him of requiring her to sleep in the bed with him on road trips, along with slipping a drug into her drink and pulling down her bathing suit top in October, and also grabbing her crotch on a different trip, according to The Washington Post's Craig Whitlock.

Moon, 61, is now the color commentator for Seahawks games on the team's radio network. Haskell claims she was subjected to unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances.

Haskell also alleges Moon would walk into the bathroom while she was showering in hotels on business trips. 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 played six years in the Canadian Football League after starring at the University of Washington. Per the report, he was sued by a Vikings cheerleader for sexual harassment back in 1995 - a case that was settled out of court.

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. The couple divorced in 2001.

"She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry", Fitzgerald told The Post. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

"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".
