A judge in New York today dropped all criminal charges against form International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The end of the case brings to a close an extraordinary three-month ordeal for Strauss-Kahn. In May, he was arrested and removed from an Air France jet on the ground at JFK airport, after Nafissatou Diallo, a 33-year-old maid at a Manhattan hotel, accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was cleaning his room. Diallo still has a civil lawsuit pending against Strauss-Kahn.

We did two shows on the high-profile case, examining both the string of powerful men accused of sexual misconduct and exploring the implications of the Strauss-Kahn case.
