The sexual accusation
Wendy Haskell, 32 filed a lawsuit of sexual harassment in Orange County, California on 4 December 2017 against Warren Moon, 61. The documents claim that Warren had made his assistant sleep in his bed on business trips and also forced her to wear only lingerie when alone with him. It also said that Warren had drugged her drink for sexual favors.
She stated that when she complained to the company’s CEO David Meltzer, instead of helping her out of this situation, he demoted her. She further said that she was told to obey Warren’s bizarre requests if she wanted to keep her job intact. She has detailed a trip made to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in October 2017 with Warren, when after sipping a drink, she felt strange.
When she asked whether he had put something in her drink, Wendy said that he answered in the affirmative. She said that Warren had said that he had spiked the drink since he felt that she was not having fun on trips.
Wendy also said that all female employees on the trip were told via email to wear “neon G-strings” during the trip and if they did not comply, they would have to pay severe penalties.
She also mentioned the time when she had to share a bed with Warren and woke up to find his hand on her genitals. When she refused, he forced her to allow his hand on her buttocks. She did not approach the police since she was afraid. Her lawyer Diana said:
“She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry. She had no idea that her job duties were going to involve that kind of personal protocol.”
