SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego must show that elected officials have undergone sexual harassment prevention training under a settlement.
The U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1a6SlCs ) reports that the city admitted no liability in the settlement backed by the City Council, but agreed to provide at least two hours of online training to elected and appointed officials within six months of their hire.
The city must report to the state every six months for five years.
