PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo says she will petition a court to release all documents from a grand jury investigation into former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s failed video game company, 38 Studios.
The Democratic governor said Friday she’ll seek the documents after the conclusion of a Superior Court civil case over the state’s $75 million deal with the company.
Raimondo says residents were hurt by the bad deal and rightfully demand and deserve transparency.
Democratic Attorney General Peter Kilmartin has objected to releasing the documents. He and State Police announced in July that there would be no criminal charges following a yearlong grand jury investigation but they say the case is still open.
The separate civil case filed by the state’s economic development agency is awaiting resolution.
