Embattled Mayor Bob Filner was spotted Monday entering a downtown San Diego office building where it was reported that negotiations were underway regarding his future.
CBS8 reported that he entered the building around 9 a.m., and was followed about 45 minutes later by Irene McCormack Jackson -- the woman who has sued him and the city for sexual harassment -- and her Los Angeles-based lawyer, Gloria Allred.
Councilman Kevin Faulconer was also seen entering the building.
According to 10News, Filner's lawyers are negotiating with Allred and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith in a mediation session presided over by a federal judge.
Filner was expected to return to work Monday following what his lawyers called a "personal week." However, he had not been seen at the City Administration Building by late morning.
The mayor, accused of sexual harassment by numerous women and under investigation for alleged misuse of city-issued credit cards and shakedowns of developers, has not been seen in public for around three weeks.
