The unofficial and reuse of privileged documents has led to a civil case against Cristiano Ronaldo being thrown out of court.

 

What did the court say about the Cristiano Ronaldo case?

The lawsuit brought against the Portuguese striker by a woman who accused the Red Devils player of sexual assault was dismissed by a US district judge in Las Vegas. A federal judge ruled that the lawsuit filed by Kathryn Mayorga was based on embezzled confidential documents obtained by her attorney that tainted her case. Last year, another Las Vegas court also recommended dismissal due to the conduct of Kathryn’s legal counsel.

The judge’s written verdict says Kathryn is losing her opportunity to pursue this case and try to spin the settlement of the allegations, which, in themselves, involve serious allegations of a very personal nature. But in light of the depth and breadth with which ill-gotten information saturated her claims and other records—and probably her memory and perception of key facts—any other sanction would be an inappropriate remedy. It has also been said that nothing less than a dismissal with prejudice will purge the infection that has infiltrated in this case from its very beginning and preserves the integrity of the litigation process.

 

What was said about the documents?

Kathryn’s lawyer, Stovall obtained documents related to the sexual assault case from Football Leaks creator Rui Pinto, which referee run were confidential and privileged and therefore inadmissible as evidence. The judge added that Stovol’s reuse of stolen, privileged documents to prosecute this case has every sign of bad faith conduct. And because the record shows that he and Kathryn have extensively reviewed these documents and used them to fashion the very basis of Kathryn’s claims, simply disqualifying Leslie Stovall will not purge prejudice from their misuse.

Leslie deliberately looked for his opponent’s hacked, internal, privileged communications. Once Stovall received them, he did not seek ethical guidance on how to handle these apparently sensitive documents. Instead, Leslie gave them to his client, guaranteeing that they would pollute her memory and perception of the events, and he built her complaint on their content, as evidenced by the plaintiff’s sworn verification. It is also said that with this falsified cast, he then sat over the documents for fourteen months, nine of which he actively sued the case.
