Judge rules 38 Studios depositions may go ahead

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Rhode Island judge hearing the 38 Studios lawsuit has ruled that three defendants must give additional depositions.

First Southwest, Wells Fargo and Adler Pollock & Sheehan had asked the judge to rule they need not provide additional testimony, but Judge Michael Silverstein denied the requests Monday.

Attorneys say individuals at the firms have provided some 17 hours of depositions already.

In ruling that the depositions may go ahead, the judge limited them to a day each.

The lead attorney for the former Economic Development Corp. says there are still about three dozen depositions scheduled before the close of the evidence-gathering period on Aug. 15.

The EDC sued 14 parties over the 2012 collapse of ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios, which got a $75 million state-guaranteed loan.
