PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The leader of a state Senate oversight committee is requesting documents from the litigation surrounding the collapse of Curt Schilling's video game company.

State Sen. James Sheehan announced Tuesday that he has filed an open records request for all depositions and exhibits from the lawsuit.

The former Economic Development Corp. sued the ex-Red Sox pitcher and others after 38 Studios went bankrupt. The agency approved a $75 million loan guarantee for the company. The state is on the hook for about $90 million.

Sheehan, a North Kingstown Democrat, says the documents could shed light on the EDC's decision to award to the loan guarantee, and help prevent similar debacles in the future.
