Leslie Mark Stovall, lawyer for Kathryn Mayorga, was ordered to pay around 300,000 euros to the Portuguese player, following the case in which the star was accused of sexual assault in a Las Vegas hotel, in 2009.

It is recalled that a federal judge in the state of Nevada has given the right to Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyers and asked for the filing of Kathryn Mayorga’s complaint.
