Bob Filner returned to work as San Diego mayor in the midst of a sexual harassment lawsuit and a recall campaign, but is reportedly in mediation to settle the suit.
The Associated Press reports:
Attorney Gloria Allred announced Monday evening that she and her client, Irene McCormack Jackson, spent the day in mediation at a downtown office building, where Filner was spotted by a TV crew entering earlier in the day.
Allred wouldn’t say whether Filner’s resignation was discussed nor whether the mayor was present. She said the mediator, former federal judge J. Lawrence Irving, asked that no one make comments while talks continued.
According to 10News in San Diego, “sources said [the mediation was] designed to include a review of a potential resignation by Filner.”
More then a dozen women have accused Filner of sexual harassment, though the mayor has so far refused to resign and instead took a two-week break from work to attend therapy.
In the meantime, Filner opponents are gathering signatures to force a recall campaign, and have until Sept. 26 to collect 102,000 signatures.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
