Strauss-Kahn lawyers deny $6m deal with hotel maid
Lawyers for former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn have denied reports he has settled a lawsuit with a hotel maid who accused him of sexual assault.
They denied reports that a deal of $6m (£3.7m; 4.6m euros) had been agreed and said negotiations were still under way.
Mr Strauss-Kahn was held in New York in May 2011 after Nafissatou Diallo said he assaulted her in his hotel suite.
Prosecutors later dropped charges amid concerns about her credibility.
Lawyers William Taylor III and Amit Mehta said in a statement on Friday that reports of a settlement were "flatly false".
"The parties have discussed a resolution but there has been no settlement. Mr Strauss-Kahn will continue to defend the charges if no resolution can be reached," their statement said.
