The federal district judge, Jennifer Dorsey, has made this decision due to the "conduct in bad faith" of the plaintiff's lawyer in front of the soccer player.

Cristiano wins a new judicial battle
Cristiano Ronaldo won a battle in court

Cristiano Ronaldo has once again won a battle in court. This time as a result of the complaint filed by a Nevada woman, Kathryn Mayorga, in the United States court. As the plaintiff claims, she was raped by the Manchester United striker in 2009, in Las Vegas, but the player's environment made her keep her silence for $375,000, but she set aside this money with this complaint, with which he intended to obtain a much higher amount, reaching one million dollars.

Bad faith conduct" against Cristiano

Jennifer Dorsey, the federal district judge, brought out this case to punish the woman's lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, this Friday for "bad faith conduct" and for using "stolen" confidential documents that, as assured by the judge, tainted the case.

Through a 42-page order, the Las Vegas judge has indicated that dismissing the case without the option to present it again is a severe sanction, but the Portuguese crack had been greatly harmed by Stovall's conduct, which has led Dorsey to make precisely this decision, to dismiss Mayorga's lawsuit.

“I believe the continued collection and use of these documents was in bad faith, and simply disqualifying Stovall will not remedy the damage to Ronaldo because the misappropriated documents and their confidential content have been woven into the very fabric of Mayorga's claims. Harsh sanctions are warranted, ”says the trial ruling.

For their part, from the defense of the plaintiff, they have not responded this Saturday to the telephone messages or those sent to the email. Text messages to associate Larissa Drohobyczer also went unanswered. Still, Mayorga and her team could appeal the decision to the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco.
