(AP) A court date has been set for next week to discuss a New York City hotel maid's sexual assault lawsuit against former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn.


Office of Court Administration spokesman David Bookstaver says the hearing will be held 10 a.m. Monday in the Bronx.


Strauss-Kahn's lawyers said Friday that the two sides had discussed resolving the case.


The suit stems from a May 2011 hotel-suite encounter. The case forced Strauss-Kahn's resignation from the IMF and cut off his potential candidacy for the French presidency. He said whatever happened was consensual.


Prosecutors dropped the criminal case, saying the accuser had credibility problems. Nafissatou Diallo (na-fee-SAH'-too dee-AH'-loh) said she was truthful. Her attorney, Kenneth Thompson, declined to comment Tuesday.


Strauss-Kahn called her suit defamatory and countersued for $1 million.
