Cristiano Ronaldo’s legal team demanded that his rape case be dropped in court, arguing that his prosecutor’s lawyers had secretly handed over the stolen documents to investigators.
The 36-year-old footballer, who is set to star in the European Championship this month, is accused by former model Catherine Mayorga of raping her at a Las Vegas hotel after a 2009 party.
Her claims were settled out of court 12 years ago when the 37-year-old received a lump sum payment of £ 375,000 from the Portuguese striker.
However, in 2018, she began proceedings to revoke her original agreement, claiming it was signed under duress.
She is pursuing the Juventus star through a Vegas court, claiming £ 56 million in damages and costs.
He vehemently denies her allegations, and Christiansen’s team of attorneys now claims that her attorney used behind-the-scenes tactics.
They filed an emergency motion to disqualify Stovall and Associates and close the case, as well as to seal all confidential documents.
They claim Leslie Stovall did not disclose hundreds of documents relating to a police investigation hacked by Football Leaks.
Ronaldo’s lawyers also say Mayorga’s team approached the hackers for additional documents without reporting it to the court.
They allege that Stovall’s turned over the hacked documents to the Las Vegas police in order to try to reopen the investigation.
The proposal reads: “Because of such a flagrant misconduct, no sanction other than dismissal will suffice.”
Stovall and Associates were contacted for comment.
