A judge in Manhattan today ordered the dismissal of all criminal charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, though a civil lawsuit remains. The former head of the International Monetary Fund was accused of sexually assaulting a maid in a New York hotel three months ago. The case made headlines around the world, prompted a huge debate in France, where Strauss-Kahn had planned to run for president, and raised questions about the treatment of victims in sexual assault cases. Will Saletan is national correspondent for Slate magazine.
