Dominique Strauss-Kahn, formerly head of the IMF and once a hopeful for the French presidency, has reached a settlement with the New York City hotel maid he was accused of sexually assaulting in 2011.
Nafissatou Diallo had launched a civil case against Strauss-Kahn after the criminal case against him fell apart.
The financial details of the settlement are to remain confidential, the judge in the case said. Strauss-Kahn had previously denied reports in a French newspaper that the deal was worth $6 million, the AP reports.
