38 Studios

A summer slowdown of news? Rhode Island's summer of 2015 will likely be remembered for two important releases of information -- the State Police report on Cranston Mayor Allan Fung, and, more significantly, the unsealing of documents in the state's lawsuit over 38 Studios. As always, feel free to drop me a tip or your comments, and to follow me through the week on the twitters. Here we go.

All the currently sealed court documents in the state's lawsuit over 38 Studios will be made public, Judge Michael Silverstein said Friday, although the timing of the release remains unclear for now.

During a status hearing, Silverstein said lawyers in the case agreed to the unsealing of documents since discovery has been completed.

A status hearing in the state’s lawsuit over the failure of video game company 38 Studios is slated for Friday. The topics will include a proposed settlement involving some of the defendants.

The state announced earlier this month it reached a $12 .5 million settlement with four of the 38 Studios defendants. A judge has to approve the deal for it to go forward.

Some of the defendants who have yet to settle, including former 38 Studios owner Curt Schilling, are objecting to the settlement. The reasons for that have not yet been made public.
