Maid Sues Strauss-Kahn Over NYC Hotel Encounter

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City hotel maid who accuses ex-International Monetary Fund boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault has sued him.

Lawyers for Guinean immigrant Nafissatou Diallo filed the lawsuit Monday in state court in the Bronx. They seek unspecified damages. They say Diallo faces a difficult recovery from an encounter with Strauss-Kahn that left her violated, humiliated and degraded.

Diallo says Strauss-Kahn fled his luxury hotel room so quickly that toothpaste was smeared on his face and he was looking over his shoulder. Strauss-Kahn pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted rape and other crimes after his May 14 arrest.

The former French presidential candidate was freed from house arrest last month after
prosecutors said they'd discovered facts casting doubt on his accuser's credibility. He's due back in criminal court Aug. 23.
