Following successful votes in the Rhode Island Senate
and House of Representatives
, a bill designed to help settle the 38 Studios
fiasco was signed into law
by Governor Lincoln Chafee yesterday.
Lawmakers hope that the bill will encourage settlements by shielding defendants from further litigation. Involved parties say that this bill will pave the way to recover as much as possible of the $90 million that Rhode Island is responsible for paying following the defaulted loan to 38 Studios.
