Strauss Kahn may file counter lawsuit against hotel maid, warns his lawyer.

New York, Aug 30 (ANI): Former International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's lawyers have warned that they might file a counter lawsuit against the hotel maid, who accused him of sexually assaulting her, if her lawyers do not tone down attacks against the Frenchman.

Strauss-Kahn's mouthpiece, Ben Brafman said that the Frecnch politician could file a countersuit against Nafissatou Diallo 'if the attacks of her lawyers become too bad,' the New York Post reports.

Diallo accused Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her in his suite at the Sofitel hotel in May.

Prosecutors dropped the case, saying Diallo's past lies would make her an unreliable witness.

The maid is now pursuing Strauss-Kahn in a Bronx civil suit.

Brafman said that even if Diallo wins her lawsuit, his client is 'virtually judgment-proof, because he has no real wealth.'

"DSK is not a rich man. It's his wife who has an important fortune," Brafman added. (ANI)
