PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A judge has decided to hold off for three weeks on ruling whether volumes of documents in the 38 Studios lawsuit should be released to the public.

Judge Michael Silverstein said all parties agreed to the delay after a closed-door meeting at Superior Court Friday morning.

At stake, some 80 depositions taken over the last several years that have remained under court-ordered seal. Among those interviewed in the lawsuit was former Gov. Donald Carcieri.

The state sued 14 defendants to try and recoup some losses from the collapse of 38 Studios in 2012.

Taxpayers are now on the hook for nearly $90 million in bond payments in the wake of the video game company’s collapse.
