The saga of Dominique Strauss Kahn's alleged rape of housekeeper Nafissatou Diallo came to a close today, at least as far as the law is concerned, with Strauss Kahn settling a suit from Diallo for an undisclosed sum. Diallo arrived at a Bronx courthouse today wearing a leopard-print scarf, and looked composed throughout the proceedings, the AP reports. "Ms. Diallo is ready to move on," her attorney said. Strauss-Kahn, for his part, did not deign to attend. The settlement is rumored to be a multimillion dollar deal. (More Dominique Strauss Kahn stories.)
