DSK Seeks Dismissal of Charges

Dominique Strauss Kahn’s lawyers have asked an appeals court in France to dismiss charges that their client allegedly helped procure prostitutes for sex parties. A ruling on the matter has been put off until Nov. 28. The former IMF chief does not deny attending the sex parties—he has admitted to attending orgies in France and the U.S. But he denies knowing that the women who participated were paid. The case, which has become known as the Carlton Affair in France, also implicates many other prominent business leaders and police officials who allegedly participated in the parties and prostitution ring.
