PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A delay is expected in a hearing on whether ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling violated state lobbying laws before clinching the deal that gave 38 Studios a $75 million state-backed loan.

Secretary of State Ralph Mollis’ office has scheduled separate hearings Thursday for Schilling and ex-38 Studios director Thomas Zaccagnino, but their lawyers have asked for a continuance.

Schilling’s lawyer says he can’t attend because of his health. He is in remission from cancer but has had “substantial side effects” from treatment.

Mollis’ spokeswoman says his office won’t object.

A lawyer for attorney Michael Corso said a similar proceeding last week was improper because Mollis hadn’t investigated whether Corso did any lobbying before he convened it.

38 Studios went bankrupt. Its collapse is the subject of a state agency lawsuit.
