Cuba Gooding Jr. Resolves Civil Rape Lawsuit, Settles Before NYC Trial

Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. has settled a civil rape case that was set to begin in New York. The lawsuit, which accused Gooding Jr. of raping a woman in 2013, was settled out of court, with both parties resolving the matter. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. The accusation against Gooding Jr. was first made in 2020, and he has consistently denied the allegations. The case has been closely watched due to the high-profile status of the actor, who won an Academy Award for his role in the 1996 film “Jerry Maguire.” Gooding Jr. still faces a separate criminal trial in Manhattan for allegedly groping three women at bars in 2018 and 2019, but his civil legal troubles have now been resolved.
