PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — At least one member of the Rhode Island House is being subpoenaed to give testimony in the 38 Studios lawsuit, and the speaker expects others will be too.
WPRI-TV reports House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello informed lawmakers in an email Saturday that one member had been contacted by a constable regarding service of a subpoena.
Mattiello says he expects others who voted in 2010 on the program under which Curt Schilling's video game company got a $75 million loan guarantee to be called to give testimony. He says he's working on a plan to provide members with legal representation.
The state's economic development agency sued the ex-Red Sox pitcher and others after 38 Studios went bankrupt. Former Republican Gov. Don Carcieri was deposed in the case last week.
