Executives of bankrupt developer 38 Studios has asked the judge to dismiss the lawsuit brought by the state of Rhode Island.
The Kingdoms of Amalur developer was investigated by both state and federal authorities, but the feds found no case against the company.
RI claims the executives knowingly withheld evidence of their company’s financial situation, and says it has "crushing evidence" to prove it.
Defendants named in the case include studio founder and Red Sox hero Curt Schilling, and company executives Rick Wester, Jennifer MacLean, and Tom Zaccagnino.
Lawyers for the defendants told the Providence Journal that the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation "failed to present any specific allegations to substantiate any claim that 38 Studios defendants conspired or colluded with anyone to defraud the EDC."
This is the second time the judge has been asked to drop the case.
