New Orleans, La — The Crisis on the Coast has led to two Hollywood actors are facing off against each other in court.
Kevin Costner is being sued by Stephen Baldwin over investments in an oil-cleaning device.
BP purchased centrifuges in an $18 million deal after the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The federal suit claims that Costner and a business partner duped Baldwin and a friend from their shares of the deal.
The trial gets underway Monday in New Orleans federal court.
