Judge Orders Lawsuit Against Kevin Costner to Go Ahead; You Will Never Guess What Stephen Baldwin and Others Are Accusing Him of Doing

Jun 8, 2011  •  Post A Comment

A judge has turned down a request by Kevin Costner to dismiss a lawsuit against him that accuses him of cheating partners, including actor Stephen Baldwin, out of profits from an oil-spill cleanup technology, reports Bloomberg.

Costner’s former partners are alleging that the "Waterworld" actor tricked them into selling their shares in Ocean Therapy Solutions for $1.9 million just days before oil company BP paid $18 million for a deposit on the floating oil-water separators to use them in cleaning up the Gulf oil spill, the story says.

The lawsuit claims Costner used "a series of half-statements and non-disclosures in order to lure plaintiffs into a cheap sale of their interests," the article says.

An attorney for Costner, who will star in History’s 2012 miniseries on the feuding Hatfields and McCoys, didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment, the piece notes.
