NEW YORK - The court date in the attempted rape case of former IMF boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been postponed to Aug. 23, his lawyers said on Tuesday, adding they hope charges will be dismissed by that date.

It is the second such delay in the highly charged case.

"We have consented to a postponement of the status hearing before Judge Obus from August 1 to August 23," Strauss-Kahn's lawyers, Benjamin Brafman and William Taylor, said in a statement.

"We understand the District Attorney is continuing to investigate. We hope that by August 23, he will have reached the decision to dismiss," they wrote.
