Actor Kevin Costner has testified in the trial of a lawsuit in New Orleans that he was heartbroken watching the Gulf oil spill disaster in 2010 and headed to the area with oil cleanup devices to aid the recovery.
Costner testified yesterday in connection with a multimillion-dollar business dispute over the devices involving fellow actor Stephen Baldwin.
Two Hollywood stars could spend the next two weeks in a New Orleans courtroom rather than on camera, on opposite sides in a real-life legal drama.
Jury selection is scheduled Monday for Stephen Baldwin's federal lawsuit against fellow actor Kevin Costner over their investments in a device BP used in trying to clean up the huge Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Both are expected to testify. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman says every litigant must be in court every day because of the seriousness of the claims and in case of mid-trial settlement talks.
