Former official says governor forced 38 Studios’ bankruptcy

PROVIDENCE — The former head of Rhode Island’s economic development agency is accusing Governor Lincoln Chafee of forcing the video game company of former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling into bankruptcy last year by impeding its efforts to restructure its debt or raise additional money.

In court filings, a lawyer for Keith Stokes, the former director of the state’s Economic Development Corp., alleges that Chafee blocked 38 Studios’ attempts to restructure its debt or raise more capital in late 2011 and early 2012.
