Warren Moon has responded to sexual harassment allegations through a statement from his lawyer, denying what was detailed in a suit by a former employee of the Pro Football Hall of Famer and Seahawks announcer, the Seattle Times reports.

Warren Moon has denied the allegations made by his former assistant and his attorney released the following statement Warren Moon is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting and harassing his former assistant -- making repeated advances and once grabbing her crotch.

Moon’s attorney Daniel Fears said in a statement Thursday that his client had not yet been served with the lawsuit, but he denied the allegations.

“Warren Moon has yet to be served with the lawsuit filed by Wendy Haskell, but he is aware of the claims contained in it,” Fears wrote, via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “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.”

Moon has taken a leave of absence from his job as a Seahawks radio broadcaster, but Fears said that decision was made only because Moon knows his “duties as a commentator on the Seattle Seahawks radio network will be impacted” as he defends himself against the lawsuit.
