STRAUSS-KAHN SETTLES: A person familiar with the case says that lawyers for former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and a hotel maid who accused him of trying to rape her have reached a settlement. His attorneys, however, said Friday a deal had not been struck, only discussed.
UP NEXT: The as-yet-unsigned agreement is expected to be presented in court next week, though the day wasn't set, said the person, who spoke to on the condition of anonymity to discuss the private agreement.
END TO SAGA?: A deal could bring an end to a saga that has tarnished Strauss-Kahn's reputation. But it might not mean the end of his legal troubles. He is awaiting a ruling on whether he is linked to "pimping" in connection with a French prostitution ring.
