Cristiano Ronaldo’s legal team seeks rape case thrown out

Ex-Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo‘s legal team has asked a federal court in the US to throw out a civil claim against him seeking damages over an alleged sexual assault. 

Lawyers for the Portuguese striker claim Kathryn Mayorga’s legal team gave ‘stolen papers’ to police in Las Vegas who were investigating claims. 

According to legal papers lodged at the United States District Court in the District of Nevada, Ronaldo’s lawyers want Ms Mayorga’s case dismissed over the conduct of her legal team.

Ms Mayorga alleges she was sexually assaulted in a Las Vegas hotel room following a night out with the footballer in 2009. 

Ronaldo strongly denies the claim. 

According to The Mirror, Ronaldo settled a case with Ms Mayorga 12 years ago for £375,000. 

She then sought to overturn that original settlement in 2018 and is now seeking more than £56 million in damages and costs. 

As well as dismissing the case, Ronaldo’s legal team wants Stovall and Associates, who represent Ms Mayorga, to be disqualified from the case. The footballer’s lawyers also want all sensitive documents sealed. 

Ronaldo’s legal team claims Ms Mayorga’s lawyers approached a group of hackers seeking more documents and handed over data illegally secured by the Football Leaks website to Las Vegas police.
