Schilling: 38 Studios ‘Didn’t Stonewall’ Auditors
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling says his video gaming company “didn’t stonewall anyone” in its interactions with the state of Rhode Island.
In a post Friday on Facebook, Schilling accuses the state Economic Development Corp. of trying to “bully and intimidate us.”
The Associated Press reported Thursday that, according to emails released under a public records request, EDC auditors tried unsuccessfully for days to access 38 Studios records. Gov. Lincoln Chafee has accused the firm of stonewalling.
Schilling says the company was working around the clock to resolve issues and was met “with deaf and dumb silence” from the EDC.
The firm was lured from Massachusetts to Rhode Island in 2010 with a $75 million loan guarantee from the state. It filed for bankruptcy in June.
An EDC spokeswoman had no comment.
