At least one legal nightmare is over for Dominique Strauss-Kahn. On Monday the disgraced former International Monetary Fund chief settled the civil lawsuit with a hotel maid who accused him of sexually assaulting her last year. Nafissatou Diallo, the accuser, settled for an undisclosed sum. A sexual-assault case against Strauss-Kahn was dismissed last year, but his legal troubles aren’t over. He’s still awaiting a decision by a French court to stop an inquiry that will determine whether he must stand trial for pimping charges related to sex parties he attended with prostitutes.
