PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A consultant for failed video-game company 38 Studios has filed a complaint against former secretary of state A. Ralph Mollis, seeking to appeal a decision that he should have registered as a lobbyist.
Attorney Michael Corso filed his complaint Jan. 2 in Superior Court. It says a hearing process convened by Mollis was unlawful and an abuse of discretion.
Mollis adopted a decision last month calling on Corso to retroactively register as a lobbyist for 2010 or face a $2,000 fine.
Nellie Gorbea, who became secretary of state on Tuesday, said she will review 38 Studios and the state’s lobbying laws before making a decision on the appeal.
Curt Schilling’s failed video game company had received a $75 million state loan guarantee.
