An unnamed, retired federal judge was said to be presiding over the mediation. It was not clear whether Filner was in attendance. According to 10News, the mediation was designed to consider Filner’s resignation among other possibilities.
Filner has been accused of sexual harassment by at least 16 different women, including city employees. Thus far, he has denied the allegations and remained defiant against calls for his resignation and a nascent recall effort.
