Cuba Gooding Jr. is all smiles as he makes his way out of the Manhattan Criminal Court on Wednesday afternoon (June 26) in New York City.
The Oscar-winning actor was joined by his lawyers to seek the dismissal in his groping case.
Cuba Gooding Jr.‘s desire to have criminal charges of forcible touching dismissed saw further action pushed until July 17.
Although listening to the pitch from the Oscar winner’s attorneys following a filing Monday to toss the case, Judge Keshia Espinal proclaimed she would not make a ruling until August 14. In court protocol via Deadline, that ruling would come after the Manhattan District Attorney’s office responds to the dismissal move in the next few weeks.
