Actors Stephen Baldwin and Kevin Costner went to court to clear up an ordeal they have been battling with since 2010.
Stephen took Costner to court because he felt that he was bamboozling him and his business associate in an arrangement to sell oil cleaning devices to British Petroleum following the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.
This unpleasant lawsuit began in Louisiana after Stephen complained that Kevin and his comrades at Ocean Therapy Solutions of shutting him out of a business venture that could have led to him being a multi-millionaire.
Baldwin and Spyridon Contogouris claimed that Costner, Patrick Smith, WestPac Resources, LLC and Rabobank, N.A. deceived them by keeping some of the details of the arrangement made with BP executives after the 2010 Gulf Coast oil spill. They thought that they should have had filled in about the potential agreement prior to agreeing to sell their shares in the company.
Costner would not settle this matter out of count, and on Thursday Jun 14, his decision prevailed. A New Orleans jury ruled on his behalf and awarded Balwin and Spyridon Contogouris.
