Just as jurors began assembling in the courtroom, they were met with a calendar entry in the official court record which wrote: “TRIAL OFF.” It added: “Reason for cancellation (on consent): the parties have resolved the matter,” according to reports.
His accuser, going by Jane Doe, says that she was sexually assaulted by him twice in a New York hotel in 2013. She alleged that the incident occurred after Gooding insisted on stopping at his room to change clothes. Gooding claims, through his attorneys, that the interaction was consensual. He says that Jane Doe even bragged afterwards about having sexual relations with a celebrity.
This isn’t Cuba Gooding Jr.’s first go-round, having been previously accused of various forms of sexual misconduct by at least 30 women over the years.
