Is the suit filed against Curt Schilling, Keith W. Stokes and others over the 38 Studios deal a good idea?

No, it will limit who will commit to serving on public boards 49% | 95 votes
Yes, people need to be accountable when public money is involved 46% | 88 votes
I don't know 5% | 10 votes

When the state filed a lawsuit against 14 people and organizations involved in the 38 Studios LLC loan guarantee, an already unprecedented deal veered off into more uncharted waters.

Named in the suit, with what amounted to the equivalent of criminal conspiracy charges, were 38 Studios founder Curt Schilling, along with two other company executives.

Also named were former R.I. Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Keith W. Stokes as well as former Deputy Director J. Michael Saul, along with the banks that placed the bonds that are at the heart of the matter.

Is this suit likely to have a chilling effect on public service volunteers going forward?
