Dominique Strauss-Kahn may never have to face hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo in court.

Completing a stunning reversal of fortunes for the ex-IMF chief, a Manhattan judge on Tuesday dropped criminal charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn. In his first public statement since being charged with sexually assaulting hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo, Strauss-Kahn says that the past months have been "a nightmare" for him and his family and that they're looking forwarding to returning to France.
