Strauss-Kahn to Pay Maid $6 Million to End Suit: Le Monde

Dominique Strauss-Kahn may pay the maid who accused him of attempted rape $6 million to resolve her civil lawsuit, Le Monde said today, citing unnamed people close to the former head of the International Monetary Fund.

Strauss-Kahn “vigorously denies the fantastical and erroneous information in Le Monde,” his French lawyers Frederique Baulieu, Richard Malka and Henri Leclerc said today in an e-mailed statement. They didn’t elaborate on what was mistaken, and declined to comment on the U.S. case.
