A publicist for the company, which Moon co-founded in 2010, did not return requests for comment to the Seattle Times.

Warren Moon, the Hall of Fame quarterback with deep ties to Seattle, was sued by his executive assistant for sexual harassment and sexual battery, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

A woman claimed Moon grabbed her crotch during a business trip to Seattle earlier this year, required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during other business trips and pulled off her bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a business trip to Mexico in October.

Moon, 61, is now the color commentator for Seahawks games on the team's radio network.

Moon, 61, played in the National Football League for 17 seasons, mostly for the Houston Oilers. She began working for the company last July as an executive assistant and would go on business trips with Moon when the former player was asked to attend various events across the country.

In 1989, he received the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his charitable works and excellence on the field.

Rally to preserve Net Neutrality
Instead, Congress continues to turn a blind eye as their appointee dismantles equal access to the internet. The future of the internet and free information is now being sold to the highest bidder.

Moon has had several public scandals with women and was sued by a Minnesota Vikings cheerleader for sexual harassment in 1995. The former case was settled out of court while Moon was acquitted in the latter. During the trial, Felicia Moon testified that she initiated the incident and her wounds were a result of trying to restrain her husband. The couple has been divorced since 2001. The lawsuit also states that she was required to wear thongs and "skimpy lingerie" anytime she was in a hotel room with Moon.

"When she protested, he replied that she had to comply to keep her job and said that 'his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement'".

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

Haskell's attorney, Diane L. Fitzgerald, told The Washington Post her client had made a decision to go public with the suit. "I think she was scared", she said.

"Whenever Ms. Haskell expressed reservations about these outrageous "job duties", Moon insisted this was "just the way it is", and threatened Ms. Haskell that unless she was "comfortable" with him, he'd "find someone else who was".
