story on Bloomberg
by Jason Schreier reports that former employees of 38
Studios are finally receiving a portion of missed paychecks from the closure and
bankruptcy of the developer founded by former baseball player Curt Schilling:
2012, former baseball player Curt Schilling abruptly shut down his video game
company 38 Studios without giving about 400 employees their final paychecks.
Nine years later, many of those people are finally seeing some money -- although
it’s just a fraction of what they were owed.
Many of the staff who worked for the volatile game developer in either its Rhode
Island or Maryland offices will receive payment of about 14% or 20%,
respectively, of what the company owed them before it ran out of money and was
forced to shut down on May 24, 2012, according to bankruptcy documents.
