Curt Schilling’s company files for bankruptcy

This was pretty inevitable:

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s troubled video gaming company has filed for bankruptcy. The filing was made in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware on Thursday.

Providence-based 38 Studios last month laid off its entire workforce. It also was more than two weeks late on a $1.1 million payment to the state.

And don’t forget the part about the houses the fired employees thought the company sold for them but didn’t!

    And then there’s all this:

    “38 Studios LLC said it owes between $100 million and $500 million to at least 1,000 creditors, many of them in Rhode Island, court documents show.”

    Yowza.

    We’ve been following this story on gamebreaker.tv and it’s getting worse every day.

    But he’s a Job Creator! One can NEVER vilify a Job Creator, regardless of how long those jobs lasted and whether or not the employees ever get paid!

    Why is it the company’s responsibility to sell its employees’ houses? If you own the house, seems to me it’s your job to decide whether to sell it or keep it.

      Unless of course your employer promised to sell your house as part of a relocation package and then told you they sold it when, in fact, they hadn’t.

        Bad on the company, but dumb on the employees: they might have asked for a copy of the closing papers that officially released them as owners as opposed to taking the word of a republican businessman who used to play for the Red Sox.

        There is nothing about the words Republican, Businessman or Red Sox that anyone should ever trust. And then you wrap them all into one package and that’s a disaster to anyone who isn’t named Frank McCourt.

        Even though I’m a Sox fan, I have to thumb up the rest of your sentiment.

        Something doesn’t compute. If the company sold “some” employees homes in 2011, there would have been income tax consequences about which the company would have notified the employee. Is there no personal responsibility for the employee to have questioned whether or not the home had been sold…..Noooo—Just find someone else to blame.

        You mean like how Curt declared bankruptcy for over 100 million dollars and he’s one of those “take responsibility for your actions” baggers?
