SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego taxpayers could be on the hook for $4 million if the city settles all claims involving the actions of former Mayor Bob Filner, who has been sentenced to home confinement for the unwanted groping of women.

U-T San Diego, which has obtained nine claims filed against the city, saysamong those seeking money is the National Women Veterans Association of America.

The group hopes to recoup more than $100,000 for an event at which Filner was to be presented a lifetime achievement award.

Filner was yanked from the agenda after his communications director, Irene McCormack Jackson, filed a lawsuit against him alleging sexual harassment.

Filner left office Aug. 30. He begins his sentence of three months home confinement in January.
