Quarterback Warren Moon Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

FREE Case evaluation

Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Former Quarterback Warren Moon Faces Sexual Harassment LawsuitWendy Haskell, an executive assistant to former NFL quarterback Warren Moon, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him Monday. She claimed Moon forced her to wear thong underwear and sleep in his bed during business trips.

Haskell started working as Moon’s assistant at Sports 1 Marketing in July and went with him to charity events, speaking engagements and other appearances every week. The lawsuit states that Moon made the 32-year-old assistant stay in his hotel room during the business trips and wear thongs while she slept. He also allegedly required Haskell to send him photos through text message of her outfits before they made public appearances. The lawsuit additionally accuses Moon of grabbing Haskell’s crotch during a trip to Seattle and putting a drug in her drink during a trip to Mexico.

Haskell said that Moon became aggressive when she resisted his demands. He also told her that if she was not comfortable with his demands, he would find someone who was.

The 32-year-old said she got demoted after complaining to the sports marketing firm about Moon’s actions. Haskell claimed she made significantly less money in the position and deal with emotional stress and embarrassment at work.

Haskell’s attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald, said that Haskell didn’t tell the police about Moon’s actions because she was scared. Fitzgerald added that Haskell wanted to build her career in the sports marketing industry and didn’t expect her job duties to include “that kind of perverse protocol.”

“What Ms. Haskell did not know at the time (of her hiring) but would unfortunately come to learn was that, despite his public persona, Moon had a dark and twisted side that commanded far more than just executive assistant services from his newly hired employee,” attorneys Fitzgerald and David C. Isaacson wrote in the lawsuit.

Daniel Fears, Moon’s attorney, said the retired football player hasn’t been served with the lawsuit, but knows about the claims.

“Mr. Moon denies the claims by Ms. Haskell. Mr. Moon contends these claims are meritless, and he has every intention to vigorously defend himself in court,” Fears added.

Moon played professional football for 23 seasons before retiring in 2000. He went on to become an announcer for the Seahawks. Since finding out about the sexual harassment allegations, Moon has requested a leave of absence as a broadcaster.

Moon is not the only NFL player accused of sexual harassment. Earlier this year, a Florida woman accused former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin of drugging and raping her in his hotel room. Irvin denied the allegations and said he was “flat out devastated” by the claims.

While Irvin didn’t receive criminal charges, he is currently being reviewed by the NFL under the personal conduct policy.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
