Report on Maid’s Exam Riles Strauss-Kahn Attorneys

August 16, 2011

NEW YORK – Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers are pushing back at the New York hotel maid who accuses him of sexually assault after a media report that a medical exam said she was injured by “assault” and “rape.”

The French magazine L’Express published an account of the accuser’s hospital record online Tuesday to accompany an interview with her lawyer.

L’Express says the record says part of her genitals was reddened and she reported shoulder pain after her May encounter with the former International Monetary Fund leader. The report echoes claims in the woman’s lawsuit against Strauss-Kahn. He denies the allegations.

His lawyers say the hospital report doesn’t establish any injuries from a forcible encounter and relies heavily on the accuser’s word.

Her lawyer says it’s nonsense to suggest the encounter was consensual.
