(Newser) – Legal troubles for accused sex attacker Dominique Strauss-Kahn may be just beginning. French police are questioning the writer in France who is suing Strauss-Kahn for attempted rape. The interview will help investigators determine if there's enough evidence to go ahead with a full-scale French criminal case against the former head of the IMF for the alleged attack on Tristane Banon, reports EuroNews.

Stateside, a hearing for his sexual-assault case has been delayed two weeks, from July 18 to Aug. 1, reports the Wall Street Journal. In a letter filed yesterday, Strauss-Kahn's lawyers and the DA's office explained that they had agreed to the delay "to facilitate both parties' continued investigation in this matter."
