PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The lawyer handling the 38 Studios’ bankruptcy is trying to recover payments to a lawyer related to the failed Providence video-game company.

Jeoffrey Burtch, the trustee in the federal bankruptcy of the 38 Studios’ legal case, wants Providence lawyer Michael Corso to return some of the money that 38 Studios paid him.

The complaint Burtch filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court says Corso should not have been paid $232,800 shortly before the company collapsed because 38 Studios was insolvent when the money was paid.

Corso charged $485 an hour for 480 hours of work.

WPRI-TV reports that Corso’s lawyer says he does not believe he must repay and plans to fight the move in court.

The company founded by ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling filed for federal bankruptcy in June 2012.
