(Newser) – The hotel maid who sued Dominique Strauss-Kahn for alleged sexual assault is due to sign off on a multimillion-dollar settlement today, the New York Daily News reports. A Bronx court has called for an interpreter for Nafissatou Diallo, pointing to an end to the case. An earlier report, denied by the former IMF chief's lawyers, said the deal was worth $6 million. Diallo has simultaneously settled her lawsuit against the New York Post, which called her a prostitute. "It only made sense for the sake of judicial economy to settle all of the related cases at one time," said a court spokesman. (Read more Dominique Strauss Kahn stories.)
