Schilling's co. files for bankruptcy; feds probing

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's troubled video gaming company has filed for bankruptcy, and federal authorities have begun an investigation into the firm.

The company, 38 Studios, had laid off all its employees last month. Its bankruptcy filing was made Thursday in Delaware.

The U.S. attorney's office in Rhode Island says it has been in contact with the FBI and state police but didn't say exactly what it's investigating.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Lincoln Chafee (CHAY'-fee) says she doesn't know the impact of the bankruptcy filing.

The company was lured to Providence from Massachusetts in 2010 when Rhode Island officials offered a $75 million loan guarantee. The state is likely to be on the hook for some of the company's debts.

A message has been left for Schilling.
