The hotel maid who accused ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her has filed a civil suit against him.
Nafissatto Diallo, 32, calls the alleged May 14 attack “violent and sadistic” in court papers filed in a Bronx court.
The West African immigrant’s legal papers claimed the French banker “humiliated, degraded, violated and robbed Ms. Diallo of her dignity as a woman,” according to a report in The New York Times.
The suit asks for unspecified damages.
Prosecutors hit Strauss-Kahn with sex assault charges. But lawyers on both sides say the case is in trouble over questions about the accuser’s credibility.
