Former Rhode Island Speaker Due In Court In 38 Studios Case

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – A lawyer for Gordon Fox is expected to ask a Rhode Island judge to quash a subpoena issued to the former House speaker in the 38 Studios case.

A hearing is scheduled Thursday.

Fox was subpoenaed in March for a range of documents related to Curt Schilling’s now-bankrupt company.

They include records of any communications he had with the former Red Sox pitcher and his efforts pushing legislation that created the program under which 38 Studios got a $75 million state-backed loan.

The state’s economic development agency is suing Schilling and others over 38 Studios’ collapse.

Fox resigned as speaker in March after federal raids on his home and Statehouse office.

His attorney has cited Fox’s constitutional protections against self-incrimination and illegal search and seizure in moving to quash the subpoena.
