NEW YORK (AP) — A New York judge dismissed the sexual assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, but the order is on hold until an appeals court rules on his accuser's request for a special prosecutor.
The judge made the ruling Tuesday.
A 33-year-old West African maid claimed that the former head of the International Monetary fund attacked her and sexually assaulted her in his luxury suite on May 14.
Prosecutors argued that DNA evidence showed sexual contact but not necessarily a forced encounter. They also see medical findings as inconclusive.
