A judge has ruled that a defendant in the lawsuit over Rhode Island's failed deal with Curt Schilling's video game company can keep some documents containing commercial information confidential - for now.

Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein said Friday he'll decide whether the records must be released if there's an open records request for them.

Wells Fargo Securities asked to withhold about 1,100 documents it says contain information valuable to competitors but unrelated to the bond transaction for the ex-Red Sox pitcher's company, 38 Studios, including client lists.

These documents aren't currently filed with the court because they likely wouldn't be used at trial.

The court clerk expects to release depositions, exhibits and court filings such as motions by late next week.

The depositions are due to the court Friday.
