Cristiano
Ronaldo’s lawyers have won a courtroom bid against a woman who accuses the
footballer of raping her in Las Vegas in 2009.

Kathryn
Mayorga, a former teacher and model, is raising questions about the validity of
a confidentiality agreement and $375,000 (£292,537) hush money she received
from the sports star in 2010.

US
magistrate Daniel Albregts told Ms Mayorga’s lawyer that it will be up to a
higher-level judge to decide if her effort to obtain more money advances will
go to trial or be settled behind closed doors.

Mr Albregts
handles filings and pre-trial arguments in the case, but Ronaldo’s lawyers want
it dismissed or dealt with in private talks.

The judge
said his preliminary review of settlement documents filed under seal in the
civil lawsuit led him to agree with Ronaldo’s lawyers that the record should,
at least for now, remain sealed.

Leslie Mark
Stovall, Ms Mayorga’s lawyer, has declined to comment on the ruling.

Ms Mayorga, who lives in the Las Vegas area, gave consent through her lawyers to be identified last year.
