Ex-EDC chief being deposed in 38 Studios suit

 
 

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The former head of the Rhode Island economic development agency that approved a $75 million loan guarantee for Curt Schilling's video game company is set to give a deposition in the lawsuit over 38 Studios' collapse.

Former Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Keith Stokes is scheduled to start his deposition Thursday. His attorney, David Martland, declined to comment.

Stokes resigned last year as 38 Studios was collapsing into bankruptcy. The EDC sued him, his then-deputy Michael Saul, the former Red Sox pitcher and others involved in the deal. The suit claims the defendants misled the agency's board into approving the loan guarantee. They dispute the claims.

Saul is scheduled to be deposed on Friday. His lawyer did not return a message.
