No Decision Yet On How to Release 38 Studios Documents

Court officials met throughout the morning Monday without reaching a decision on how to distribute thousands upon thousands of pages of documents from the state's lawsuit over failed video-game maker 38 Studios.

Superior Court Clerk Henry S. Kinch Jr. said the talks will continue, although it remains unclear for now when a process for making the information public will be established.

Kinch said the delay is due in part to the need to catalog the huge volume of documents related to 38 Studios. "You can't really attack the problem until you know what you've got," he said. "We're trying to come up with the most convenient way so the media can access [the documents] and the public can access it."

The meeting this morning was led by Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein, who on Friday announced documents from the 38 Studios case would be unsealed, hopefully within 10 days.

Kinch said the group working on the project is emphasizing making the paperwork available in a timely and convenient manner.

More than 50 people have been deposed, and many thousands of pages of documents generated, since the state went to court in 2012, in an attempt to recover taxpayers' more than $100 million in liability from the collapse of 38 Studios earlier that year.

Curt Schilling is among those being sued by the state in the lawsuit over 38 Studios.
