Costner testifies in suit over oil-cleanup devices

Stephen Baldwin has sued Costner over their investments in a device that BP used in trying to clean up the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The federal lawsuit filed in New Orleans by Baldwin and a friend claims Costner and a business partner duped them out of their shares of an $18 million deal for BP to purchase oil-separating centrifuges from a company they formed after the April 20 spill.

Actor Kevin Costner says he was heartbroken as he watched millions of gallons of oil spew into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 and that he headed to New Orleans to see if cleanup devices he helped develop could aid the recovery effort.
