    The Seattle Seahawks are a professional American football team based in Seattle, Washington, USA. They are currently members of the Western Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL).

    The forms, contained in court documents, are the latest salvo in a sexual harassment lawsuit being brought against Behring by Patricia Parker, the former chief financial officer of Behring's Blackhawk offices.

    According to Parker, Behring wanted protection from disgruntled dis·grun·tle

    Behring's lawyers counter that Parker has a ``long history of bilking landlords, investors and insurance companies.'' They say the lawsuit is a setup.

    ``It's a carefully calculated effort by Mrs. Parker and her husband to take advantage of Mr. Behring,'' attorney Gregory Bonfiglio said.

    According to Parker's lawyers, the release states, ``I understand that this is purely a social invitation which I am free to accept or reject and that Ken will pay travel costs and associated expenses in his role as my host, and only in that role.''

    ``I recognize that conversation and conduct of a sexual nature may take place on the trip. I have voluntarily accepted Ken's invitation. I agree that I will not bring any suit or make any financial or other claim of any kind against Ken that is in any way related to the trip.''

    Parker quit in March, claiming Behring's behavior created a hostile working environment. She alleged in court records that she was subjected to harassment and asked to do demeaning de·mean 1

     chores to cover up Behring's sexual trysts, including ordering prescription drugs to enhance his sexual performance.

    She quit two months after he allegedly grabbed her, kissed her and fondled her breasts under the guise of a New Year's kiss.

    Behring's lawyers say that since 1992, Parker and her husband have had at least four court judgments against them, totaling $48,000. They also say Parker has used at least five different names and Social Security numbers.

    Parker's lawyers say those allegations and Parker's past financial problems have nothing to do with the suit against Behring.
