PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)
Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is among those asking a Rhode Island judge to dismiss a state economic development agency lawsuit over its $75 million loan guarantee for his now-defunct video game company.
Attorneys representing Schilling and others at his former startup, 38 Studios, on filed documents Friday asking Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein to throw out the lawsuit.
In November, the Economic Development Corp. sued Schilling, other company executives and some of its own former officials, saying they misled the agency's board into approving the loan guarantee. The company filed for bankruptcy last year.
Schilling has denied wrongdoing and called the lawsuit political.
