The lawsuit lists Moon as president and co-owner of the Irvine, California-based company.

A call by The Associated Press to Moon's agent, Leigh Steinberg, was not immediately returned.

Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon is now in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Haskell told The Washington Post through her attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald, that she wishes to have her name made public.

The woman who made the claims was hired this summer as an executive assistant to Moon, according to KING 5 TV. He then ventured to the National Football League and made nine Pro Bowls, throwing for 49,325 yards, 291 touchdowns and 233 interceptions in 17 National Football League seasons with the Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs and Seahawks.

Moon's lawyer explained that his client took that action because he is afraid "his duties as a commentator on the Seattle Seahawks radio network will be impacted as he defends himself against these claims".

Yemen ex-president killed as fighting shakes capital
He ruled Yemen for more than three decades and played a pivotal role in the country's ongoing civil war. Saudi-led aircraft continued to fly overhead.

Whitlock's piece also notes that Moon has been in trouble with the law before, including a sexual harassment lawsuit from a Vikings' cheerleader alleging he offered to pay her for sex in 1995 (settled out of court), a later 1995 arrest and assault charges after his then-wife said he slapped and choked her (he was acquitted after she testified she provoked the fight; they later divorced in 2001), and a 2007 drunk driving charge (reduced to negligent driving, led to community service).

Additionally, Haskell alleges Moon once ripped her clothes off despite her objections. She also claims Moon pulled off her swimsuit during the Mexico trip. Haskell, who traveled with Moon to speaking engagements, also claims in her suit that Moon required her to stay in his hotel room and wear "skimpy thong lingerie bottoms" while sleeping in the same bed. When she protested, he replied that she had to comply to keep her job and said that "his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement", the lawsuit states. Haskell says she was demoted after making the complaints.

Undrafted out of Washington in 1978, Moon played for the Oilers, Vikings, Seahawks and Chiefs and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.

But the nine-time pro-bowl player who played pro football in both the Canadian and American leagues is denying the charges, Pro Football Talk reports.

Haskell's attorney, Diane L. Fitzgerald, told The Washington Post her client had made a decision to go public with the suit. "She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry".
