Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon used to grab his assistant's crotch without her consent, mandated that she sleep in his bed during business trips, and drugged her drink during a business trip in Mexico "because he thought she was not 'having fun, '" according to a lawsuit filed this week by the former assistant in a California court. The suit also claims that she was demoted when she complained to the company Sports 1 Marketing, owned by Moon, about his sexual advances.

A statement of claim filed on Monday shows Wendy Haskell is suing Moon for unspecified damages for sexual harassment she alleges she endured upon being hired as his executive assistant this summer.

The full lawsuit, which was obtained by USA Today, made multiple allegations of sexual harassment against Moon.

In May 1995, he was sued by a Vikings cheerleader who accused him of sexual harassment, alleging that he offered her cash for sex.

Moon, 61, was involved in a handful of controversies during his National Football League playing days with the Houston Oilers (now the Titans), where he starred as quarterback from 1984-93, and with the Vikings, Seahawks and Chiefs before retiring in 2000.

Reports also revealed that Anushka Sharma is likely to wear a bridal wear designed by fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. In order to avoid that, choosing Italy as the wedding destination seems the most appropriate decision by the lovebirds.

He has worked for the Seahawks broadcast since 2004.

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 charged with assault and eventually acquitted by a jury after Felicia stood by him during the trial.

Three days later, Haskell reported Moon's behavior-the dress code, sleeping arrangements, touching, and unwanted sexual advances-to the company's CEO, David Melzer, according to the lawsuit. They divorced in 2001. He was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

Haskell's attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald, told the Washington Post that her client didn't report anything to police at the time because she was probably "scared".

Global News called Sports 1 Marketing twice for comment on Wednesday but on both occasions were told nobody was available to speak. "She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of perverse protocol".
