Embattled San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's attorneys were in a mediation session Monday that included a review of a potential resignation, San Diego's KGTV reported.
Two anonymous sources inside the session told KGTV that Filner's attorneys were meeting with City Attorney Jan Goldsmith and attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Filner's former communications director in a sexual harassment lawsuit. One of the sources told the news station that the session was scheduled for late morning and had no set end time.
Another source told KGTV that a federal judge was presiding over the mediation, held at an undisclosed location.
Filner said in a news conference last month that he would go back to work on Aug. 19 upon completion of a two-week behavioral therapy program. The mayor was reportedly nowhere to be seen when San Diego City Hall opened Monday.
