Schilling says R.I. suit over 38 Studios is ‘political’

PROVIDENCE — Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling on Friday called a lawsuit brought against him by Rhode Island’s economic development agency ‘‘political’’ and denied wrongdoing in connection with a $75 million loan guarantee the state gave his failed video game company, 38 Studios.

The Rhode Island Economic Development Corp. on Thursday sued Schilling, some of its former employees, and others, saying they committed fraud and other acts that misled the state into approving the deal. 38 Studios laid off all its employees and declared bankruptcy earlier this year.
