Schilling's video gaming co. files for bankruptcy
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s troubled video gaming company has filed for bankruptcy.
The filing was made in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware on Thursday.
Providence-based 38 Studios last month laid off its entire workforce. It also was more than two weeks late on a $1.1 million payment to the state.
Gov. Lincoln Chafee (CHAY'-fee) has said the company has been facing ‘‘grim times.’’
The company was lured to Providence from Massachusetts in 2010 when Rhode Island officials offered a $75 million loan guarantee they said would bring jobs and tax revenue. The state is likely to be on the hook for some of the company’s debts.
A message was left for Schilling.
