Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Dominique Strauss-Kahn agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by the maid who accused him of trying to rape her, resolving a legal saga that ended his term as head of the International Monetary Fund and derailed a potential French presidential bid.

Lawyers for Strauss-Kahn and the hotel maid, Nafissatou Diallo, told New York State Supreme Court Justice Douglas McKeon in the Bronx today that they have reached an agreement to end the suit, which accused the former IMF head of “violent and deplorable acts” during an encounter at the Sofitel in midtown Manhattan.
