Last week in New York, former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released without bail and it appeared that sexual assault charges might be dropped. Today in Paris, Tristane Banon, a reporter for the news magazine L'Express, filed suit against DSK, as he is now called, accusing him of attempted rape during an interview in 2003. In the meantime public intellectuals in both countries are arguing about the administration of justice. Philip Golub is a contributing editor of Le Monde diplomatique, a French journal based in Paris.
