PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ An attorney for the Rhode Island economic development agency that is suing Curt Schilling over the state’s investment in his failed video game company hopes the case will go to trial within a year, but Schilling’s lawyer will move to have the suit dismissed.
Max Wistow, who represents the Economic Development Corp., said he hopes the case will move “as expeditiously as possible.”
The EDC in November sued Schilling and some of its own former officials, saying they misled the agency’s board into approving a $75 million loan guarantee for 38 Studios. The company filed for bankruptcy in June.
Jeffrey Schreck, a lawyer for Schilling, said Friday he will seek to have the suit dismissed. Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein set a March 1 deadline for doing so.
