BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A dinosaur expert who was an adviser for the “Jurassic Park” films testified in a lawsuit between his employer and a developer whose plan to use the paleontologist’s fame to launch a luxury development crumbled when the economy collapsed.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that Jack Horner of the Museum of the Rockies testified Thursday and Friday that dinosaur egg digs involving clients of the upscale development stopped when money ran out.

The museum sued Wade Dokken in 2009 contending Dokken breached a 2007 contract by failing to pay the museum from a $2 million endowment in exchange for the museum highlighting the Ameya Preserve and changing Horner’s title to Ameya Preserve Curator of Paleontology.

Horner dropped the title in 2009 after concluding he wasn’t going to be curator.
