BREAKING: Governor Chafee to Return Campaign Contributions from Defendants in 38 Studios Suit
Friday, November 02, 2012
Governor Lincoln Chafee will return $2,450 in campaign contributions he received from an attorney and a law firm named in the 38 Studios lawsuit, spokeswoman Christine Hunsinger told GoLocalProv.
According to the suit, Stolzman was “the attorney assigned by Adler Pollock to have primary responsibility for matters involving the EDC. In addition, at all times relevant to this complaint and through January 2011, he was the Secretary of the EDC and attended and took the minutes for all meetings of the EDC Board in his capacity as Secretary and general counsel.”
Chafee will also return $1,450 in contributions made between Dec. 2010 and Mar. 2012 from the political action committee formed by Moses Afonso Ryan Ltd. The firm “provided professional services to the EDC regarding the subject matter,” according to the complaint.
The state filed suit Thursday against more than dozen individuals, financial institutions and law firms in its effort to recoup millions of dollars from the failed 38 Studios deal. Former Red Sox ace Curt Schilling and former EDC director Keith Stokes are also named in the suit.
