Hearing set after DA seeks to drop case against Strauss-Kahn

A status hearing was scheduled for Tuesday in the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexual assault case, a day after a New York district attorney said charges should be dropped against the former International Monetary Fund chief. Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers applauded the decision. The accuser’s attorneys and women’s rights activists were outraged, CNN informs. In “a recommendation for dismissal” filed in court Monday, two prosecutors in the Manhattan district attorney’s office laid out their arguments for requesting that numerous charges – including attempted rape and sexual assault – be dismissed, citing fresh evidence and questions about the accuser’s credibility.
