Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo and his legal team have asked Judge Jennifer Dorsey to fine Catherine Mayorga’s lawyer, Leslie Mark Stovall, $626,000.
Before Judge Dorsey, Ronaldo’s lawyer, Peter Christiansen, requested compensation for the Manchester United star in return for the accusations and lawsuits brought against him in the “alleged rape” case, which Mayorga brought against him.
Dorsey had fired Mayorga Stovall’s lawyer from court, which convened on June 10, accusing him of using stolen documents.
Dorsey said that “Stoval exceeded the limits of moral behavior, and ignored the rules of this court,” adding that “the rejection of the Catherine Mayorga case without the option of reopening it was a severe punishment for Stovall, who caused great harm to Ronaldo,” according to the Spanish newspaper “AS”.
For his part, Ronaldo’s lawyer said: “Given Stovall’s violations and flagrant misconduct, he must be held responsible and ensure that my client receives financial compensation.”
And according to “Sky News Arabia”, Christiansen indicated that Stovall used evidence including records of Ronaldo’s illegal communications, and others of his client Mayorga.
And Catherine is a former model, who accused Ronaldo of raping her in a Las Vegas hotel in the United States in 2009, and said that she suffers from “depression and post-traumatic stress” that followed the alleged crime.
Mayorga filed a lawsuit against Ronaldo in a Nevada state court, and her lawyer said that she would seek to drop a settlement agreement she claims was reached with the “Don” under which the latter paid her $375,000.
