SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego businesswoman is the latest woman to publicly accuse Mayor Bob Filner of making unwanted sexual advances.

Dianne York said in a news conference in National City on Wednesday that Filner placed his hand on her buttocks while she posed for a photo with him after a meeting at his office about three months ago.

York first told her story to CNN.

She says she has reported the incident to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

At least 17 women have publicly accused Filner of behaving inappropriately toward them.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Attorney General Gary King says he will not challenge a move by the Dona Ana County clerk to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

King told reporters Wednesday that he didn't believe state laws prohibiting same-sex marriage were constitutional.

He also said he would not challenge any other county clerk who issued licenses.

Still, King warned that those marriages could be invalid if the state Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is not allowed in New Mexico.

The Dona Ana County clerk began issuing same-sex marriage licenses Wednesday after he said his review of state law allowed him to do so.

Couples immediately began arriving at a Las Cruces courthouse to receive licenses amid pending court challenges elsewhere in the state.

Maj. Nidal Hasan told a military judge on Wednesday that the shooting wasn't in the heat of passion. He says jurors shouldn't have the option of convicting him of voluntary manslaughter.

Hasan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others at the Texas Army post in the deadliest mass shooting ever on a U.S. military base. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

Hasan is acting as his own attorney, and his statements marked one of the rare moments that he's spoken during the 12-day trial.

Jurors were not in the courtroom at the time.
