Kevin Costner said the case was about clearing his name, not money

Kevin Costner has won a multi-million dollar case brought against him by fellow Hollywood star Stephen Baldwin.

Baldwin had accused Costner of cheating him and his business partner in a deal to sell oil clean-up devices to BP after 2010’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

A federal jury in Louisiana deliberated for two hours before rejecting Baldwin’s claim for more than $17m (£11m) in damages.
