Warren Moon requests leave of absence from Seahawks radio broadcast

The woman, Wendy Haskell, was working as a publicist for Sports 1 Marketing, a company owned by Moon.

The latest disturbing sexual harassment allegations are against famed former NCAA, CFL and National Football League quarterback and current Seattle Seahawks' broadcaster Warren Moon (seen above during agent Leigh Steinberg's 2017 Super Bowl party). The team when reached by the Seattle Times on Wednesday afternoon had no immediate comment.

When Haskell first complained to Moon about his business trip demands, he said her job depended on her compliance and that his assistant before her had "accepted the same arrangement", according to the lawsuit. Haskell alleges that she was then demoted by the firm after more complaints about Moon's sexual advances.

His Edmonton Eskimos won consecutive five Grey Cups and though his USA teams never won a title, he was named to nine Pro Bowls and set several single-season passing records in a less pass-happy era than now.

Air Pollution In London 'So Bad It Cancels Out Benefits Of Exercise'
For the study, researchers at Imperial College London and Duke University recruited 199 volunteers aged 60 and older. This builds on previous studies which have suggested air pollution exposure could cause premature births .

This is not the first claim against Moon, who earned the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year honors in 1989. But his reputation was later marred by scandals involving women. The case was settled out of court days later. After Moon was arrested, he called his reaction to their argument a "tremendous mistake". Moon was acquitted of the charges after a jury spent less than a half-hour deliberating in 1996. The couple has been divorced since 2001.

Moon co-founded Sports 1 Marketing in 2010 and serves as its president.

Moon is accused of grabbing the crotch of his executive assistant, requiring her to wear "skimpy thong lingerie bottoms" and sleep in the same bed as him on business trips, according to the Washington Post. She alleges that when she expressed reservations about her duties, she was told by Moon that it was "just the way it is", the lawsuit stated.

Haskell declined to comment through her attorney, Diana Fitzgerald of Miami, Florida.

Additionally, Haskell alleges Moon once ripped her clothes off despite her objections.

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