DSK Countersues NYC Hotel Maid

Dominique Strauss Kahn, who faces charges in France of promoting prostitution, has filed suit against the Sofitel hotel maid who charged him with rape.

The countersuit, seeks at least $1 million plus undetermined punitive damages from the maid, Nafissatou Diallo, who is accused by DSK of "falsely and maliciously asserting" she was attacked.

The 18-page document accuses Diallo of malicious prosecution, abuse of process, false imprisonment, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

"Ms Diallo participated in the commencement and maintenance of a baseless criminal prosecution," the suit said, "and in doing so intended to injure Mr Strauss-Kahn."
