Former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn agreed to settle a lawsuit brought by a hotel maid who accused him of trying to rape her, the New York Times reported, citing unidentified people with knowledge of the matter.
Details of the settlement, such as monetary damages, couldn’t be determined today and the settlement hasn’t yet been signed, the newspaper said, citing one of the unidentified people. The two sides are scheduled to appear before New York State Supreme Court Justice Douglas E. McKeon in the Bronx next week, the Times reported.

The maid’s attorneys, Kenneth Thompson and Douglas Wigdor, didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment on the New York Times report, and Marina Ein, a spokeswoman for Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers in the case, William Taylor III and Amit Mehta, didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail.

Strauss-Kahn, 63, was pulled off an Air France flight at John F. Kennedy International Airport on May 14, 2011, arrested and charged with trying to rape the maid, Nafissatou Diallo, a housekeeper at the Sofitel in midtown Manhattan.
Diallo filed a civil lawsuit against Strauss-Kahn in the Bronx in August, weeks before Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. dropped the criminal charges against Strauss-Kahn after concluding that Diallo had lied about events surrounding the alleged attack.
