NEW YORK (AP) -- Former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn and a New York City hotel maid have signed a settlement of her sexual-assault lawsuit.

A judge announced the deal on Monday. The amount is confidential.

The lawsuit stemmed from a May 2011 hotel suite encounter. It also spurred criminal charges, forced Strauss-Kahn's resignation from the IMF and cut off his potential candidacy for the French presidency. He said whatever happened was consensual.

The criminal case was dropped after prosecutors said his accuser had credibility problems. She said she always told the truth about the encounter.

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