Something about this feels so much like a Phillies story, yet it isn't at all. Current Phillies' ballpark namesake, Citizens Bank, is suing former Phillies pitcher, Curt Schilling, for over $2 million connected to a loan they gave to his now bankrupt video game studio.â†µ
Schilling's studio has also defaulted on a $75 million taxpayer backed loan the company got through the state of Rhode Island. However, Citizens Bank said that Schilling personally vouched for the loan they handed out and want him to pay it back personally. They are asking courts to freeze his assets and are also suing his banks to get a hold of his cash.
"Schilling absolutely and unconditionally guaranteed to the bank the payment and performance of all indebtedness, obligations and liabilities of 38 Studios to the bank, then existing or thereafter arising."â†µ
Schilling's company is also being investigated by the FBI in the wake of the scandal.
