Former Seattle Seahawks and Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon is being sued for sexual harassment according to a report

Haskell, 32, joined Sports 1 Marketing as an executive assistant to Moon in July. "Mr. Moon denies the claims by Ms. Haskell".

The Seahawks had not responded to a request for comment as of Thursday morning.

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 was filed Monday in Orange County Superior Court in California. When she asked if he put something in her drink, Moon admitted to doing so, she said, telling her he did so because he thought she wasn't "having fun".

Originally reported by The Washington Post, Haskell's lawsuit claims Moon, 61, required the plaintiff to wear certain types of underwear and share a bed with him on business trips.

Moon works as a color commentator for the Seahawks' radio network. He was forced to spend the first six years of his career in the Canadian Football League reportedly because of a league-wide bias against black quarterbacks; Moon was told he would be better off playing another position at first.

"Whenever [the assistant] expressed reservations about these outrageous "job duties, ' Moon insisted this was "just the way it is, ' and threatened [the assistant] that unless she was 'comfortable" with him, he'd 'find someone else who was.' Moon insisted these 'requirements" were part of the job, and made clear that [the assistant]'s employment depended on her acceptance and compliance with Moon's lascivious behavior, demands and orders". Though he won the 1989 Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his charity and on-field excellence, his career was also pockmarked with scandals involving women. The case was settled out of court within days. 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. The couple divorced in 2001.

If he is found guilty in this case, Moon could also face disciplinary measures from both the Seattle Seahawks and the league under the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. Haskell also says she was demoted after making the complaints. The Washington Post does not typically name alleged victims of sexual assault, but Fitzgerald said her client had agreed to go public.
