The ongoing saga of 38 Studios and the state of Rhode Island continued on Wednesday courtesy of Governor Lincoln Chafee introducing a new piece of legislation to the state assembly. Specifically targeting the ongoing lawsuit, the legislation would be used as an inducement for the former company to settle with the state out of court rather than go through the lengthy process of a trial by ensuring that the named defendants will not face further litigation on the same causes.

In more conversational terms, the bill states that if the defendants in the lawsuit settle out of court, they cannot be sued again in Rhode Island courts by other people over the closure of the company or other similar charges. Whether or not this will provide sufficient incentive for Curt Schilling and the other 13 defendants named in the lawsuit to simply settle remains to be seen.
