Lawmaker’s request for 38 Studios records rebuffed

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island state senator’s request for documents from the litigation surrounding the collapse of Curt Schilling’s video game company has been rejected.

Sen. James Sheehan said he had hoped his request for depositions and exhibits from the lawsuit could help explain what went wrong with the state’s investment in 38 Studios. The former Economic Development Corp. sued the ex-Red Sox pitcher and others after 38 Studios went bankrupt. The agency awarded the company a $75 million loan guarantee.

In a response to Sheehan’s request, a lawyer for the agency says some defendants are seeking a protective order to keep the material confidential. The attorney told Sheehan the documents can’t be released until the court rules on the motion.

Sheehan, a North Kingstown Democrat, leads the Senate Oversight Committee.
