Legal officials chose not to prosecute Dominique Strauss-Kahn on charges of attempted rape, according to the New York Times.
Reuters reported that French public prosecutors dropped the investigation against the former chief of the International Monetary Fund due to lack of evidence.
Tristane Banon, a writer, accused Strauss-Kahn of attempted rape after an interview in a Paris flat eight years ago.
The New York Times reported that this is the second time French officials have chosen to not prosecute Strauss-Kahn.
Officials did not have much choice in the matter due to lack of physical evidence and the age of the case, according to the New York Times.
