Cuba Gooding Jr. is set to stand trial on February 1st for allegedly groping three women in separate incidents, Justice Curtis Farber ruled Monday. Gooding appeared at Manhattan Supreme Court wearing sunglasses, a dark grey suit and black mask.
“This case has been on my calendar for two years, going on three years. This is a firm trial date and it has to go,” Justice Farber ordered.
His lawyer Peter Toumbekis pushed to delay the trial until 2022. “I’ll make it work,” Toumbekis said in response to the judge’s ruling.
