Whoopi set to testify in ‘T. Rex’ case

Whoopi Goldberg must testify in a dispute between the actress-comedian and a production company over whether she promised to appear in a “buddy cop” movie opposite a dinosaur, a judge ordered Friday.

Attorneys for the production company T. Rex allege Goldberg had been meeting with them to give her deposition, until she learned that they supposedly possessed a tape containing her promise to play the role.

At that point, they allege, she wanted to hear the tape before testifying further.

Ralph Loeb, Goldberg’s attorney, has attempted to prevent the tape from being admitted as evidence.

On Friday, Superior Court Judge Stephen Lachs ordered Goldberg to make her statements June 28 and 29 and directed T. Rex to hand over a copy of the tape immediately following the testimony.

The two sides sued each other March 8 after negotiations on a movie about a police woman and her dinosaur-partner Theodore Rex unraveled.
