NYC maid's lawyers look to Strauss-Kahn interview
NYC hotel maid's attorneys: Strauss-Kahn should explain encounter in French TV interview
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Lawyers for a New York City hotel maid who accuses former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her say he should explain his version of their encounter in an upcoming French TV interview.

Attorneys Kenneth Thompson and Douglas Wigdor (WIHG'-dohr) said Friday people deserve to hear Strauss-Kahn "answer pointed questions about his conduct." They note Guinean maid Nafissatou Diallo (na-fee-SAH'-too dee-AH'-loh) answered questions in July interviews and gave a detailed account of the May 14 encounter.

Sunday's French TV interview would be Strauss-Kahn's first since his arrest. Prosecutors dropped all criminal charges against him last month. He still faces a lawsuit filed by Diallo. He denies her allegations.

The Associated Press doesn't identify people who claim they're sexual-assault victims unless they come forward publicly, as Diallo did.
