PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — An attorney who was seeking deposition testimony from a Rhode Island House lawmaker in the 38 Studios civil lawsuit is withdrawing the subpoena.
Lawyer William Dolan said he agreed Tuesday to withdraw the subpoena. He represents two of the defendants in the suit filed by the state's economic development agency over the 2012 collapse of ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's video game company.
Dolan wouldn't say why he was withdrawing the subpoena or identify the lawmaker he had wanted to take a deposition from. House spokesman Larry Berman has also declined to identify the member.
Speaker Nicholas Mattiello on Saturday informed lawmakers that someone had been subpoenaed. He said he expected others who voted on the loan guarantee program under which 38 Studios got $75 million would be, too.
