DSK Ruling Delayed

The DSK scandal will live on. A French court on Wednesday delayed ruling on whether former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will stand trial for sex charges. Strauss-Kahn has been alleged to have participated in sex parties in the northern city of Lille with prostitutes, although Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer has argued his client did not know the women were prostitutes. Strauss-Kahn, 63, was once considered a contender for the French presidency, until he was arrested in May 2011 in New York for allegedly sexually assaulting a maid. The charges were later dropped. Several other women came forward in France and alleged abuse, although the Lille charges are the only pending ones left.
