(Filner wants litigation moved to Imperial Valley)….That according to reports filed by the Associated Press.
Bob Filner is the current Mayor of San Diego. Before that he represented Imperial County and parts of San Diego in Congress. The report says Filner’s attorney will request the change of venue at his deposition in September. He had been scheduled for a deposition on Friday, but it was changed after the court was notified it would conflict with Filner’s Behavioral Therapy. Eleven women have accused Filner with sexual harassment. One of them, Irene McCormack Jackson has filed litigation against the Mayor. McCormack is Filner’s former Communications director. Attorney Gloria Allred, who has told the Associated Press that she will contest any request for a change in venue, represents her. She said she believes Filner could receive a fair trial in San Diego.
