PARIS - A French lawyer said on Monday his client was considering filing a legal complaint against IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn over an alleged sexual assault on her almost a decade ago.

Lawyer David Koubbi said his client Tristane Banon, a writer, may file a complaint over an alleged incident that took place when she went to interview Strauss-Kahn, a former French finance minister, in an apartment."We are considering filing a complaint," Koubbi said in a text message to Reuters.

Strauss-Kahn was charged in New York at the weekend with sexually assaulting a hotel chambermaid. His lawyer said he would plead not guilty.
