. . LAW: CASE: DECISIONS: Strauss-Kahn Case: What Next for Accuser and Accused? . . Strauss-Kahn Case: What Next for Accuser and Accused? By Laura Smith-Spark CNN August 24, 2011 -- Updated 2012 GMT (0412 HKT) . .CNN) -- Since France's Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested in New York three months ago on sexual assault charges, the drama surrounding his case has gripped the United States, France and the world.
.The case appeared to pit the word of the archetypal powerful white man against that of a poor black woman, in the form of his accuser, hotel maid and immigrant Nafissatou Diallo.
.The criminal charges against the former French finance minister were finally dropped Tuesday by prosecutors in Manhattan, who said they doubted Diallo's credibility. But where does that leave both protagonists in this lurid drama, played out on the global media stage?
.For Strauss-Kahn, who stepped down as head of the International Monetary Fund amid the scandal, Tuesday's news was a cause for celebration.
."This is the end of an unjust and terrible test. I'm relieved for my wife, my children, my friends and all those who've supported me," he said. "I can hardly wait to return to my country but first I still have a few things to do before being able to leave. I will explain myself more fully once I return."
.What he will say once he is back in France is not clear -- but his legal troubles are not yet over.
.Strauss-Kahn must remain in the United States for at least another 30 days to allow for an appeal against the decision to drop the charges. Meanwhile, a civil case filed against him by Diallo is still pending.
.Investigators in France are also considering whether to prosecute him for attempted rape over a complaint filed by writer Tristane Banon, in relation to an alleged incident in Paris in 2003.
.And a lawyer for Diallo, Thibault de Montbrial, opened up a new front in the legal battle Tuesday when he filed charges in France accusing a member of Strauss-Kahn's staff of putting pressure on a woman in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles not to testify against him in the New York case.
.Aside from the legal issues, Strauss-Kahn must also overcome the damage done to his reputation if he hopes to recapture his political trajectory.
