PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A Rhode Island judge is allowing most of a state
agency’s lawsuit against former major-league pitcher Curt Schilling and executives at
his failed video game company to move forward.
Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein on Wednesday issued a 99-page decision
that allows the state Economic Development Corp. to sue the onetime Diamondbacks ace, former 38
Studios executives, former EDC officials and others, saying they misled the
agency’s board into approving a $75 million state loan guarantee for the
company. The company filed for bankruptcy last year, leaving the state on the
hook for more than $100 million.
The EDC sued in November. The judge turned down the bulk of their motions to
dismiss the lawsuit.
Lawyers for the EDC did not immediately comment. Schilling attorney Jeffrey
Schreck declined to comment.
