The lawyer for the maid who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her at a Manhattan hotel met Tuesday with prosecutors in the case.
Ken Thompson would not discuss the specifics of the meeting. His client wants the charges pursued in the case, which has hit a snag since investigators revealed earlier this month they had found problems with the maid's credibility.
The next hearing for the former chief of the International Monetary Fund has been set for Aug. 1.
A judge released Strauss-Kahn from house arrest July 1 after investigators said they discovered significant gaps with the maid's honesty.
The prosecution said earlier this month that it was not moving to dismiss charges "at this time," but acknowledged the case was turned upside down after revelations that the maid had lied about parts of her past and her account of what happened that day.
Defense lawyers have argued there was no "forcible" encounter. Strauss-Kahn denies that he attempted to rape the maid.
