PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Most of a lawsuit claiming former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and executives at his failed video game company duped the state’s economic development agency into approving a $75 million investment can move forward, a Rhode Island judge ruled.

Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein’s decision allows the Economic Development Corp. to proceed with its lawsuit against Schilling, former 38 Studios executives, former EDC officials and others. The suit alleges fraud, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, racketeering and conspiracy and says the board was misled into approving a $75 million loan guarantee for the company in 2010.
