    "Political agents pulled the trigger"

    "I was elected to make changes. People opposed me from the beginning. They found the weapons they needed in my own failures...and they used them in a bloody and vicious way."

    Now about diversity.

    The city is a "majority of people of color. We have not tapped the full strength of the diversity in this city."

    "Toughest decision of my life."

    "The fight for control of this city has become vicious and bloody."

    "Can't afford to continue this battle, even though I know if given due process I would be vindicated."

    "My desire for a progressive world will drive me to keep going."

    The terms of the agreement: on screen and handout

    1. No resolution of any criminal charges; up to the Attorney General
    2. No money owed to the city
    3. City accepted the resolution and settlement agreement.

    Under CA law, the city is strictly liable for sexual harassment by city employees, including the mayor.
    In sexual harassment cases, the city may ask city employees for reimbursement.

    They looked at possible and current claims.

    Claims made by current & former employees/contractors, the city will provide a joint defense. By providing a joint legal defense, we save expense. We have to pay the expenses anyway. Filner has signed the waiver allowing San Diego to provide defense. Should Filner be found guilty, the city reserves the right to reimbursement.

    The ONE exception is the case of Irene MacCormack-Jackson. The city will not seek reimbursement on a settlement, but may reserve the right to go after reimbursement for "punitive damages."

    Mr Filner's waiver allows him to hire outside legal council but at his own expense after the first $98,000.

    The city has control over the settlement of the claims.

    Recalling the major does not remove the city's sexual harassment liability.

    We will continue to work with Gloria Allred in mediation.

    We will look toward reasonable ways to settle all claims.
