PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has reached a tentative agreement to settle financial claims in the 38 Studios bankruptcy case in Delaware.

Court documents show the federal bankruptcy trustee has agreed to settle claims against Schilling and three former 38 Studios officials for $300,000.

The agreement, entered last week, doesn’t affect the ongoing suit filed by Rhode Island‘s economic development agency, which also names Schilling. The agency claims its board was duped into approving a $75 million loan guarantee for the video game company.

The bankruptcy agreement says the parties deny wrongdoing and that they entered into it to avoid further litigation. The settlement money would come from an insurance policy also being used to pay legal bills in the Rhode Island lawsuit.

The Providence Journal first reported the agreement.
