PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ A court has appointed a receiver for former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s video game company now that its bankruptcy case has been moved from Delaware to Rhode Island.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee announced the appointment of attorney Richard Land on Thursday. An attorney representing the
state, Tom Carlotto, says it’s the first step in a process in which the state will attempt to recoup as much of its investment in the company as possible.
The state had sought the appointment of a receiver in Rhode Island following a federal judge’s decision to move the bankruptcy case.
