PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A judge has postponed hearing arguments over whether to unseal filings in the lawsuit over the failed 38 Studios deal.

Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein met with lawyers in the case privately Friday. He then announced the parties agreed to a three-week continuance.

A lawyer for Rhode Island’s economic development agency asked Silverstein to unseal the filings, saying the public has a right to know. Attorney Max Wistow says there are about 60 depositions related to motions for summary judgment.

An attorney for two defendants says releasing documents piecemeal could cause confusion.

Neither attorney would discuss Friday’s proceedings, saying the conference was confidential.

Ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s failed video game company got a $75 million state-backed loan.

The former Economic Development Corp. sued Schilling and others over the collapse.
