Filner Reaches Settlement Over Charges

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) reached a proposed settlement agreement with his legal adversaries that likely sets the stage for the end of his brief, scandal-plagued tenure as mayor, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

"The tentative agreement centers around a lawsuit filed against the mayor and the city by a former Filner aide who accused him of sexual harassment and unwanted sexual advances. Three days of mediation... ended late Wednesday when a group of lawyers and city leaders... emerged from behind closed doors to announce a deal had been reached."

The City Council will consider the proposal at 1 p.m. Friday in closed session.
