A rape lawsuit filed in the United States against Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has not been dropped, the plaintiff’s lawyer said Wednesday, dismissing a report to the contrary. “The charges were not dropped,” said Larissa Drohobyczer, attorney for Kathryn Mayorga, who claims she was sexually assaulted by the Portuguese soccer star in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009. A Bloomberg report that the case had been dropped stemmed from the filing of a notice of voluntary dismissal last month in Nevada state court in Las Vegas. “The state case was dismissed by us because we filed the identical claims in federal court due to federal court’s rules on serving foreigners,” Drohobyczer told AFP. “We basically just switched venues but the claims remain.”Related News Kevin De Bruyne: Manchester City have to put in hard work to retain EPL crown Mid-day hosts first-of-its-kind girls football tournament | Ranis of Rink 2019 ‘Starstruck’ David Beckham shares photo with Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke Ronaldo, 34, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid player, has strongly denied the accusations against him.
