27 April, 2012
A New York judge is expected to rule next Tuesday [May 1] whether to toss out a civil lawsuit against former International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn brought by the hotel maid who accused him of sexually assaulting her. A spokesman for the court system, David Bookstaver, said the decision will be released on Tuesday morning. The ruling had initially been expected at the end of this week.
[April 24}Judge Douglas McKeon is expected to rule on April 27 whether disgraced French politician and former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will face a civil lawsuit filed by a hotel maid accusing him of sexual assault.
“There should be a decision on Friday,” the office of Judge Douglas McKeon in New York state court in the Bronx. Lawyers for both sides argued the motion to dismiss before McKeon last month. Neither Diallo nor Strauss-Kahn was present in court.
The lawsuit was filed in the Bronx, where Diallo resides.
