A woman who accused Cuba Gooding Jr. of raping her at a Manhattan hotel in 2013 urged a federal judge on Tuesday to sustain her civil lawsuit against the Academy Award-winning actor.

An attorney for the unnamed plaintiff rebuffed Gooding’s challenge to the constitutionality of a New York City law that gives victims of gender-motivated violence up to seven years to sue their alleged abusers, and asked the court to maintain her pseudonymous status in the case.
