Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has denied sexual harassment claims levied against him by a former executive assistant and intends to fight the allegation in court.

A lawsuit filed in California on Monday accused Moon of sexual harassment, sexual battery, and discrimination based on sex, among other damages.

"Warren Moon has yet to be served with the lawsuit ... but he is aware of the claims contained in it," Moon's attorney Daniel Fears said in a statement obtained by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "Mr. Moon contends these claims are meritless, and he has every intention to vigorously defend himself in court."

The accuser was hired as Moon's executive assistant in July, traveling around the country with him to various speaking engagements and appearances. However, she was demoted by Moon's marketing firm after she complained about his alleged sexual advances.
