Once-secret documents could shed light on 38 Studios deal

By The Associated Press


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Court officials are poised this week to release tens of thousands of pages of previously secret documents in the lawsuit brought over the state’s $75 million deal with 38 Studios, the video game company started by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.

The lawsuit against Schilling, executives at 38 Studios, banks and others that aided the deal, seeks to recover the money taxpayers lost.

The documents include 66 depositions, many of them lengthy. Former Gov. Don Carcieri, for example, was deposed for three days.                

More than three years after the company ran out of money and collapsed, the documents could provide answers about what went on behind the scenes in the 2010 deal to lure the company to Rhode Island from Massachusetts.
