NEW YORK (AP) -- Defense lawyers pushing for sexual assault charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn to be dropped say they had a productive meeting with prosecutors.

Attorney Benjamin Brafman declined to comment further or answer questions from reporters as he left Wednesday's meeting.

Just a few weeks ago, the sex case against the former International Monetary Fund leader looked ironclad.

Prosecutors are now rethinking whether they can even go forward with the case after finding that Strauss-Kahn's accuser wasn't truthful about her background and about the aftermath of the alleged sex attack.
