Cuba Gooding Jr could be facing a huge financial loss after failing to respond to sexual assault suit. The report says the legal team has made a costly mistake for the actor. After determining that the 53-year-old Oscar winner was “willfully ignoring” the legal action, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Crotty on Thursday issued a default judgment against Gooding. According to New York law, one’s failure to respond and/or offer a defense is the same as an admission of guilt. The suit seeks $6 million in damages for an alleged rape that occurred in 2013. Crotty says if Gooding doesn’t speak up before September 7th, he’ll award the plaintiff full damages.
