PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ A Rhode Island judge is allowing most of a state agency’s lawsuit against former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and executives at his failed video game company to move forward.

Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein on Wednesday issued a 99-page decision that allows the state Economic Development Corp. to sue Schilling, former 38 Studios executives, former EDC officials and others, saying they misled the agency’s board into approving a $75 million state loan guarantee for the company. The company filed for bankruptcy last year, leaving the state on the hook for more than $100 million.

The EDC sued in November. The judge turned down the bulk of their motions to dismiss the lawsuit.

Lawyers for the EDC did not immediately comment. Schilling attorney Jeffrey Schreck declined to comment.
