Judge Says Raimondo Must be Deposed on 38 Studios

 

NewsRadio 920 WHJJ and the Associated Press

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — General Treasurer Gina Raimondo must submit to a deposition in a lawsuit brought over the deal that gave a $75 million state loan guarantee to Curt Schilling's video game company.

Raimondo was not in office when the deal with 38 Studios was struck in 2010 and she opposed it when she was running for general treasurer. Now, she's running for governor.

A lawyer for Keith Stokes, former executive director of the state's economic development agency, wants to ask Raimondo about communications she had with the agency when she was a candidate.

Raimondo's lawyer said she could answer written questions, but Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein on Friday said she must submit to a deposition.

Defense lawyers also want to depose Gov. Lincoln Chafee. He opposed the deal as a candidate.
