SAN DIEGO (AP) — The lawyer for a woman suing San Diego Mayor Bob Filner says settlement of the lawsuit isn't part of the mediated agreement between Filner and city officials over sexual harassment allegations.
Gloria Allred said Thursday that she did not sign off on the deal that was announced Wednesday evening by San Diego city officials. No details have been released and Allred said she's unaware of the terms.
Allred says she hopes the agreement calls for Filner's resignation but says it shouldn't include the promise to pay Filner's legal bills.
Allred's client is a woman who was a member of Filner's staff. She's among at least 17 women who have accused Filner of sexual harassment.
