NFL, CFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon accused of sexual harassment in California lawsuit
Sports
A California woman has filed a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment and battery against former Edmonton Eskimos star quarterback Warren Moon.

Wendy Haskell, a former executive assistant to Moon at Sports 1 Marketing, alleges in the lawsuit that Moon required her to wear skimpy lingerie, share his bed during business trips and made unwanted sexual advances.

Haskell also alleges in the documents that Moon grabbed her crotch while she was sleeping on a recent business trip in Seattle.

None of the allegations have been proven in court. Sports 1 Marketing did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Moon, 61, spent his entire CFL career with Edmonton and won five consecutive Grey Cups from 1978-1982. He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2001. The Eskimos said in an email that they had no comment.

Moon went on to play 17 seasons in the National Football League with Houston, Minnesota, Seattle and Kansas City.

He appeared in nine Pro Bowls and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

Moon is currently an analyst on the Seattle Seahawks’ radio network. 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.
