According to reports, the filing didn’t say whether the accuser had reached a settlement with the Portuguese player.

The New York Times reported in March that Juventus, the Italian league champions, wouldn’t participate in the International Champions Cup in the US this summer to avoid the risk that Ronaldo would be detained by authorities as part of a rape investigation.

Ronaldo publicly denied the allegations and never filed a response to the lawsuit.

Leslie Stovall, a lawyer representing the woman who sued Ronaldo, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the dismissal.
