Attorneys for Strauss-Kahn Deny Settlement Reached

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Attorneys for Dominique Strauss-Kahn deny that the former International Monetary Fund chief has reached a settlement with a New York City hotel maid who accused him of trying to rape her.

William Taylor III and Amit Mehta said in a statement issued Friday that the parties have merely "discussed a resolution."

A person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Thursday that a settlement had been reached. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss the private negotiation.

Strauss-Kahn's attorneys say a report that their client has agreed to pay $6 million to settle the civil case is "flatly false." The French newspaper Le Monde, citing people close to Strauss-Kahn, reported that figure.

The New York Times first reported the agreement.

Diallo performed a public service by making it public that Strauss-Kahn is a serial sexual predator. I hope she got a chunk of his money and I hope to never see him in any position of responsibility again. He's a common criminal.
