New reports that Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the hotel maid who accused him of sexual assault have reached an agreement concerning the civil lawsuit against him. On the streets of New York, locals weighed in. SOUNDBITE: Lynn saying: "He's probably either just trying to settle and keep her quiet and get it quieted off or he just didn't want to go through the legal ramifications of going further." SOUNDBITE: Ariel saying: "He's giving that six million dollars, that means he's guilty. You know it's hard to believe 62 years old, he has to have super Viagra." SOUNDBITE: Lynn saying: "He's probably either just trying to settle and keep her quiet and get it quieted off or he just didn't want to go through the legal ramifications of going further." Despite reports that the former IMF Chief will pay Nafissatou Diallo several million dollars, Strauss-Kahn's attorneys have released a statement calling the amount of six million dollars "flatly false." Criminal charges of attempted rape against him were dropped due to concerns about Diallo's credibility. While an agreement in the civil suit is expected to be finalized next week, it won't be the end to Strauss Kahn's legal woes. French authorities are now investigating whether he was involved with a prostitution ring. In Paris, Christopher Mesnooh, an attorney who has been following Strauss-Kahn, says it is still too early to rule out a comeback. SOUNDBITE: Franco-American Lawyer and Partner At Law Firm Field Fisher Waterhouse Christopher Mesnooh Saying: "I think we could assume that if he gets all of this behind him in 2012, he'll be able to re-involve himself in French politics, or in international economics, or as a lawyer or as a professor, starting next year." His personal life has suffered. After standing by her husband during the criminal case, his wife Ann Sinclair separated from him over the summer.
