Lawyers for Cuba Gooding Jr. are providing a court with video they say will show the actor did not grope a woman at a New York City bar.

The prosecution, meanwhile, presented the court Wednesday with a deposition from Gooding’s accuser.

The defense is seeking a dismissal of the case, saying delays could cost the actor film opportunities he’s lined up. However, Judge Keisha Espinal said prosecutors need a chance to respond in writing.

Gooding nodded when he was asked outside court if he thinks his case will eventually be dismissed.

As he waited for his ride, a passerby yelled: “Show us the money, Cuba!” — referring to a line from Gooding’s Oscar-winning role in “Jerry Maguire.”

Gooding was arrested June 13. He has pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and sexual abuse charges.
