"Soon after she began her employment, Moon demanded [the assistant] submit to a variety of unnerving sexual and perverse controlling arrangements, including sleeping in the same bed with him on all business trips, providing him unfettered access to the bathroom every time she showered, wearing skimpy lingerie while in the obligatory single room, obtaining prior approval for her wardrobe, and being subjected to continuous unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances", the lawsuit said, according to multiple reports. "Mr. Moon denies the claims by Ms. Haskell".

The Seahawks did not immediately return a request for comment.

The team announced that day it had "accepted Warren Moon's request for a leave of absence as the club's radio analyst".

The lawsuit, filed Monday in Orange County, Calif., also alleges that Moon, 61, committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman's crotch during a trip to Seattle this year. Her job, which she claimed she was demoted from after complaining about Moon's misconduct, required her to travel with Moon to events on a regular basis.

Additionally, Haskell alleges Moon once ripped her clothes off despite her objections. She also accused Moon of drugging a drink of hers during an October trip to Mexico.

Luxury brands win European Union court ruling on online distribution
Coty's German unit filed the case against one of its retailers, Parfumerie Akzente , which used Amazon to sell Coty products. The European Commission then claimed that manufacturers should be able to decide, in order to protect their brand's image.


After news of Haskell's lawsuit against Moon broke Wednesday afternoon, the Seahawks issued a statement granting Moon a leave of absence and replacing him with Dave Wyman on their radio broadcast of this Sunday's Seahawks game in Jacksonville, Fla.

The lawsuit claims that Haskell traveled with Moon on an nearly weekly basis during her employment and that he made her stay in his hotel room and share his bed.

Moon, who was named the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year in 1989, was sued by a Vikings cheerleader who accused him of offering her cash for sex in 1995. The former case was settled out of court while Moon was acquitted in the latter.

After winning five consecutive championships in the Canadian Football League, Moon moved on to the NFL for a 17-year career that included stints with the Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs. Moon is the co-founder and president of the company. The couple divorced in 2001.

Diana Fitzgerald also told Global News she had not pursued criminal charges at this time and that they "have not made a decision as far as the criminal aspect of the case". The Washington Post does not typically name alleged victims of sexual assault, but Fitzgerald said her client had agreed to go public.
