SAN DIEGO (AP) – A jury says former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner sexually harassed a city employee but she won’t get any money.
The panel on Wednesday declined to award damages to Stacy McKenzie. The San Diego Union-Tribune says jurors found her harassment wasn’t severe or pervasive and there wasn’t any sexual battery.
McKenzie, a regional director in the park department, says Filner wrapped an arm around her neck and brushed her breast during a 2013 encounter.
Filner testified he didn’t remember the incident.
He resigned in 2013 after eight months in office. Nearly two dozen women alleged he groped them or made unwanted advances. The city has settled several lawsuits for around $1 million.
Filner pleaded guilty in 2013 to false imprisonment and battery. He was sentenced to house arrest.
