Ruling due Tuesday in NYC suit vs. Strauss-Kahn

A ruling is now expected next week on whether to throw out a New York City hotel maid's lawsuit claiming that Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexually attacked her.

Court system spokesman David Bookstaver says the decision will be posted online at 10 a.m. EDT Tuesday. The ruling initially had been expected this week.

Bronx state Supreme Court Justice Douglas McKeon is making the ruling.

The housekeeper says Strauss-Kahn tried to rape her in his Manhattan hotel suite last May. The former International Monetary Fund leader has denied doing anything violent in their encounter.
