DSK Requests Dismissal of Maid’s Civil Suit


Attorneys for Dominique Strauss-Kahn filed a motion today in a Bronx court to dismiss Nafissatou Diallo’s civil case seeking unspecified damages, arguing that the former IMF chief was protected by diplomatic immunity when the suit was filed. Diallo’s lawyers argue that DSK is not a diplomat, paid for his own hotel room, and was here on personal business. [Bloomberg]
