    A Rhode Island judge has ruled that all records will be unsealed in the lawsuit over the state's failed $75 million deal with ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's video game company.

    Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein said Friday the parties have agreed the files will be made public because discovery is complete.

    He says he hopes that will happen within 10 days.

    The records include depositions of officials, including former Gov. Donald Carcieri, and former House Speaker Gordon Fox.

    Silverstein is considering whether to approve a partial settlement in the lawsuit.

    Rhode Island's economic development agency agreed to a $12.5 million proposed settlement with four defendants, including the agency's former top leaders.

    Schilling and several remaining defendants object to the proposed settlements. The full reasoning for their objections is under seal.
