DSK asks court to drop lawsuit, Wall Street Journal

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, has asked a Bronx Court to drop a civil lawsuit filed by hotel maid and Bronx resident Nafissatou Diallo, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Lawyers for 62-year-old Strauss-Kahn claim the Frenchman has diplomatic immunity from his former position at the IMF, and has asked the court to dismiss the civil lawsuit filed by the maid after he allegedly sexually assaulted her in May of this year.

The original criminal case against Strauss-Kahn was dropped earlier after prosecutors questioned Diallo’s credibility.
