NEW YORK - Lawyers representing the woman who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault have asked Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance to withdraw from the case and appoint a special prosecutor, accusing Vance's office of leaking damaging information about her.

"District Attorney Vance, we ask in earnest that your office voluntarily recuse itself from the Strauss-Kahn case and that you appoint a special prosecutor," Kenneth Thompson, the lawyer for the 32-year-old hotel maid from Guinea who accuses Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault, wrote in a letter dated Wednesday.
