Baldwin and Contogouris claim they were deliberately excluded from a June 8 meeting of Costner, Smith and BP executive Doug Suttles, who agreed to make an $18 million deposit on a $52 million order for the 32 machines.

Cobb has said his clients didn’t know about the deal when they agreed to sell their combined 38 percent ownership stake in Ocean Therapy Solutions for $1.9 million.

Costner’s testimony Thursday didn’t get that far. It made mention of an earlier meeting with Baldwin and others that Costner described as one of the most “disorganized, dysfunctional” meetings he’d ever been part of.

Pacific West Resources, a company operated by Costner and Smith, also is a defendant in the case.
