The attorney for San Diego Mayor Bob Filner argued in a letter Monday, one day before the City Council voted against paying for the mayor's legal bills, that the city should pick up the tab because it failed to provide adequate sexual harassment training.
The mayor's attorney Harvey Berger wrote in a letter to City Attorney Jan Goldsmith that the training was scheduled but the city trainer canceled and did not reschedule.
"While, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, many might argue that 'you don't need a weatherperson to tell you which way the wind blows,' and an adult male should not need sexual harassment training," Filner may not be facing a lawsuit today if he had undergone the classes, Mr. Berger wrote, according to Fox News.
