The South Dakota Supreme Court on Monday, March 19, 2012, will hear an appeal of ruling that found Costner did not breach a contract with an artist whom he commissioned to produce the sculptures. The sculptures were commissioned for a resort he planned in South Dakota's Black Hills. That resort was never built but he instead placed the sculpture at his Tatanka attraction near Deadwood.
