City Reaches Mediation Deal With San Diego Mayor Bob Filner


Businesswoman Dianne York says Filner put his hands on her buttocks during this photo after a meeting in May.

SAN DIEGO (KTLA)  — An agreement was reached Wednesday with embattled San Diego Mayor Bob Filner after three days of mediation, the city attorney told reporters Wednesday.

At a news conference, City Attorney Jan Goldsmith said the proposed solution would be presented to the City Council at a closed session.

The council meeting was scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m. at City Hall.

Following that meeting the results would be announced at a public session, Goldsmith said.

Filner recently underwent behavioral therapy following multiple allegations of sexual harassment.

So far, 18 women have come forward to say that Filner acted inappropriately, including businesswoman Dianne York who revealed Wednesday that Filner put his hands on her buttocks during a photo opportunity after a meeting three months ago.
