Cuba Gooding Jr. was only preparing himself to go on trial on the basis of being accused of s*xual assault.

The Jerry Maguire star was supposed to begin his trial on 6th June but things might not have gone the way people were initially expecting.

Although the woman who accused the actor still remains to be anonymous, she was previously told by the judge to come forward and reveal her identity before the trial was to start. However, she chose not to take any action on those orders. More so, it seems as if the trial will no longer be taking place as both parties have reached a settlement.

The trial was supposed to take place on 6th June but only moments prior to the beginning there was an official announcement that the trial had been called off. The reason for the same was also stated to be that both parties had resolved the issue outside of the court. The settlement was finalized on the same day the trial was supposed to take place with both the woman and Gooding’s attorneys refusing to give out any statements as of now.
