IMF chief Strauss-Kahn settles lawsuit with hotel maid

12 December, 2012

WASHINGTON: Former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and a New York City hotel maid who accused him of attempting to rape her have agreed to settle her civil lawsuit against him, Bronx County Supreme Court Justice Douglas McKeon said.

Details of the settlement, including the amount of any damages to be paid by Strauss-Kahn to Diallo, will not be made public, McKeon said at a court hearing on Monday, according to US media.

Nafissatou Diallo, the 33-year-old maid, had accused Strauss-Kahn of forcing her to perform oral sex and trying to rape her in May 2011, when she went to clean his hotel room in Manhattan. He said the encounter was consensual.
