PARIS - Dominique Strauss-Kahn emerged smiling on Thursday from a two-hour meeting with French woman Tristane Banon who has accused him of trying to rape her in 2003, in a legal confrontation that will help to determine whether the case is upheld.

Strauss-Kahn, 62, the former IMF director, returned to France in August after a court in New York dropped charges that he attempted to rape hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo in his luxury suite.

Banon, 30 years Strauss-Kahn's junior, says he tried to rape her eight years ago in an empty apartment, tearing at her clothes and forcing her to fight him off.
