The New York City hotel maid at the center of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sex assault case has filed a libel lawsuit against the New York Post after it called her a prostitute.
The woman's lawyer, Kenneth Thompson, filed the claim Tuesday in Bronx state Supreme Court. A series of Post articles over the weekend said the 32-year-old was a "prostitute," and "hooker" and that she "traded sex for money."
The lawsuit says that the statements are false.
The Post didn't immediately comment.
Strauss-Kahn was released without bail Friday after prosecutors said new information about the woman's life had forced them to reconsider the case. They say she lied about details surrounding how she came to the U.S.
The woman maintains the sexual assault occurred.
