Mayor Bob Filner kept his low profile Thursday amid speculation he will resign as part of the sexual harassment settlement negotiated by his lawyers and city officials. Meantime, the lawyer for the former Filner aide who sued the mayor said the deal doesn't resolve her lawsuit, a potential sticking point to approval by the City Council.

San Diego's City Hall opened as usual Monday but Filner was nowhere to be found, still out of public view as he tries to survive a recall effort prompted by a cascade of sexual harassment allegations that led the entire City Council and many leading fellow Democrats to call for him to resign.
