Kevin Costner has been forced to go to trial over a multi-million dollar lawsuit which accuses him of duping Stephen Baldwin into giving up his shares in a pioneering oil-cleaning technology.
The Usual Suspects star sued Costner in December (10), claiming he should have benefited from Costner's success after he introduced an oil-filtration device to help clean up the Gulf of Mexico oil spill last year (10).
Baldwin alleged he was a 10 per cent partner in the invention, but claims the movie star and his partners persuaded him to sell his shares in the company. He is now demanding more than $4 million (£2.7 million) from the actor.
Costner filed to dismiss the legal action in February (11), but on Wednesday (08Jun11), a U.S. district judge in New Orleans, Louisiana rejected the request, ruling the case should be fought out in a non-jury trial, according to Bloomberg.
A trial date has been set for May (12).
