Schilling calls suit political, denies wrongdoing

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is calling a lawsuit brought against him by Rhode Island economic development officials “political” and denying wrongdoing in connection with a $75 million state loan guarantee the state gave his video game company.

The Rhode Island Economic Development Corp. on Thursday sued Schilling, some of its former employees and others, saying they committed fraud and other acts that misled the state into approving the deal.

Schilling issued a statement today, his first public comments on the lawsuit. He says the EDC’s decision was made “with its eyes wide open and with full understanding of any risks.”

Schilling says he believes he’s being sued in part because of critical comments he made about Gov. Lincoln Chafee.

He also says he might file his own lawsuit.
