AM Briefing from for September 16, 2013

San Diego’s former mayor Bob Filner wants to move his sexual harassment lawsuit to Imperial County and the legal team for the woman suing him wants it to stay in San Diego. Filner’s people say because the noise around the former mayor’s resignation was so loud and widespread that his day in court won’t be fair if the suit stays in San Diego. But the plaintiff’s lawyers say that Filner should have a jury of his peers and that means staying in San Diego. The judge will hear the motion this afternoon at 1:30
