The saga of San Diego mayor Bob Filner continues.

Filner's lawyers said this weekend he's wrapped up the therapy he sought after several women accused him of sexual harassment. He's left therapy a week earlier than expected, although it remains unclear when he went into treatment.

He is set to return to City Hall next Monday, but a rally is already being planned for noon today in front of his office. It's being called a "Not Welcome Back" rally.

Today is the day that Filner is supposed to respond with a statement to the organizers of a recall effort. For more on all of this is Sandhya Dirks from KPBS in San Diego.
