Cuba Gooding Jr.’s court case has come to an end. He was set to stand trial for the alleged 2013 rape of a woman in a New York City hotel, he settled the case. Although no details of the settlement have been made public, Cuba has maintained—through lawyers—that his encounter with the woman was consensual after the two met at a Manhattan restaurant. The woman alleged in her lawsuit that the 55-year-old raped her after persuading her to join him at a nearby hotel and convinced her to stop by his room so he could change his clothes. And although the woman remained anonymous throughout the lawsuit, the Judge ruled she would have had to reveal her name at the trial—which is no longer happening. The lawsuit was seeking $6 million in damages and included Cuba being accused of sexual misconduct against more than 30 other women. A source close to the case told E! News at the time, “It is believed there is surveillance that will exonerate him.”
