Strauss-Kahn and New York hotel maid settle lawsuit
Tina SusmanNEW YORK — A hotel housekeeper whose allegations of sexual assault derailed former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's professional career and political ambitions in France settled her lawsuit against the financier Monday, more than a year after prosecutors dropped criminal charges amid concerns over her credibility.
Details of the settlement were not released, but the accuser, Nafissatou Diallo, 33, and her attorney, Kenneth Thompson, appeared satisfied as they emerged from the courthouse. "I just want to say I thank everyone who supported me all over the world," Diallo said. "Thank you very much."
Thompson added: "Miss Diallo is a strong and courageous woman who never lost faith in our system of justice. With this resolution, she can now move on with her life."
