Accuser's Lawyer Tried To Settle Out Of Court With Strauss-Kahn's Team

Some sources are now saying that Nafissatou Diallo's lawyer tried to make a deal with Dominique Strauss-Kahn's defense team, offering to help get criminal charges dropped in return for a civil settlement. DSK's lawyers refused. If true, this revelation likely won't help Diallo's case — it might sway a jury to believe DSK's lawyers' claims that "the motivation of Mr. Thompson and his client was to make money."
