San Diego mayor back in lawsuit settlement talks

Posted:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - City officials say San Diego's embattled mayor is spending a second day in settlement talks in a sexual harassment lawsuit against him.

City Council President Todd Gloria said Tuesday that he wants a good result from the mediation discussions with Mayor Bob Filner.

Gloria and Councilman Kevin Faulconer say they cannot divulge details of the discussions but both previously said the 70-year-old former congressman should resign after a number of women accused him of sexual harassment.

Faulconer confirmed Filner has been present in the talks that started Monday after he returned from two weeks of therapy.
