NEW YORK — Prosecutors in New York plan to recommend to a judge that charges in the sex assault case against Dominique Strauss-Kahn be dropped.

A court filing today in the case against the former International Monetary Fund leader was not immediately made public, and details weren’t released.

His accuser, a hotel housekeeper, and her lawyer met briefly with prosecutors today. It had been widely expected that prosecutors would announce plans to reduce or drop the charges.

Questions have surrounded the credibility of the accuser. There were also questions about the strength of the evidence that a forcible encounter had occurred in the hotel room in May.

Strauss-Kahn is due back in court Tuesday.
