Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers accused the New York Police Department Thursday of leaking details of their client’s sex assault case to the media, thereby damaging the former IMF chief’s chances of receiving a fair trial.

And lawyers William W. Taylor and Benjamin Brafman said they themselves could release information that “would seriously undermine the quality of this prosecution and also gravely undermine the credibility of the complainant in this case,” though they didn’t elaborate.
