Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s alleged rape case was recommended Thursday to be dismissed by a judge in Las Vegas, where the lawsuit against him is currently being heard.

The legal team of Kathryn Mayorga, who accused Cristiano Ronaldo of sexually assaulting her in 2009, could still oppose Judge Daniel Albregts’ recommendation to withdraw her case from court and has until Oct. 20 to do so.

The Old Trafford star learned Wednesday of Judge Albregts’ ruling, writing that “It is recommended that Ronaldo’s motion for case terminating sanctions be granted. It is further recommended that Mayorga’s action be dismissed with prejudice.”

Ronaldo was accused by former model Mayorga of sexually assaulting her in 2009 in a Las Vegas hotel room.

The accusation was made against Cristiano Ronaldo a decade ago and Mayorga’s claims were settled out of court 12 years ago, after she received more than half a million dollars from the Portuguese forward, then for Real Madrid.

However, in 2018, Mayorga began proceedings to annul her initial agreement, arguing that it was signed under duress, but without providing any legal arguments.

Mayorga’s new claims were categorically denied by Ronaldo when he presented his defense before a Las Vegas court where the whistleblower was seeking a new award of $77 million in damages and costs.

After learning of the judge’s new decision, Ronaldo’s attorney, Peter S. Christiansen, said, “We are pleased with the court’s detailed review of this matter and its willingness to apply the law fairly to the facts, and to recommend dismissal of the civil case against Mr. Ronaldo.”

In June, Ronaldo’s attorneys, Christiansen Trial Lawyers, filed an emergency motion to have Mayorga’s legal representatives, Stovall and Associates, disqualified and the case dismissed.

They also filed an emergency motion to seal all confidential documents immediately.

They claim their attorney Leslie Stovall failed to disclose hundreds of documents related to the police investigation hacked by Football Leaks.

In documents to dismiss the claim, Ronaldo’s team accused Stovall and Associates of even approaching the hackers in search of more documents without disclosing it to the courts.
