Kevin Costner is seeking affirmation from the Supreme Court that he did not breach a contract with an artist who is attempting to sue him.

The Bodyguard star paid Peggy Detmers 300,000 dollars to make a bronze sculpture of bison and American Indians in the 1990s.

The sculpture was commissioned for a resort he had planned in South Dakota's Black Hills, where he filmed his Oscar-winning film Dances with Wolves. The resort was never built, and he instead placed the sculpture at his Tatanka attraction, near Deadwood.

A lower court judge ruled last summer that the alternative placement did not constitute a breach of contract.

Kevin's lawyer, Kyle Wiese, has asked the South Dakota Supreme Court to affirm that decision.
