NEW YORK (AP) — Lawyers for the New York hotel maid and the French novelist who have accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn separately of trying to rape them have met with prosecutors in New York.
Attorneys for the maid and for writer Tristane Banon kept mum about what they'd discussed as they emerged from a roughly 2½-hour session in the Manhattan district attorney's office on Tuesday. The maid's lawyer, Kenneth Thompson, said only that he was seeking justice for his client.
The DA's office declined to comment, as did Banon's lawyer, David Koubbi.
Prosecutors have publicly said the maid has a history of lying that has seriously weakened the case. Thompson has called on Vance to recuse his office from the case and arrange for a special prosecutor.
Strauss-Kahn denies both allegations.
