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.

Here’s your Filner update for this morning …

Yesterday afternoon yet another woman came forward and accused San Diego’s Mayor Bob Filner of sexual harassment. This brings the total to eight. Lisa Curtin the director of government and military education at San Diego City College says that Filner asked about her wedding ring, asked her out on a date then grabbed her pulled her close and gave her a “saliva-filled kiss, including feeling his tongue by my cheek.”

The Mayor is currently receiving two weeks behavioral therapy in spite of the many calls for his resignation. Yesterday San Diego’s City Council unanimously approved the filing of a cross complaint against the Mayor. This means that they can sue Filner for the cost to the city for the defense against the sexual harassment lawsuits they also decided last night not to pay for the Mayor’s private attorney. The council does pay for city employee legal defenses when the case has to do with the normal scope of their job. Many council members do not believe defending the Mayor’s behavior falls into this category.

And the city move forward.
