BEVERLY — Add a Beverly company to the many that are trying to recoup money from Curt Schilling’s bankrupt video game venture.
In court documents filed Thursday, NFS Leasing said 38 Studios owes it $1.28 million for computers and other equipment that it leased to the company run by the former Red Sox pitcher.
NFS Leasing, which is based at the Cummings Center, is asking the bankruptcy court to allow it to take back the equipment and to order the bankruptcy trustee to pay the company what it is owed.
38 Studios filed for bankruptcy on June 7. It owes $150.7 million and had assets of $21.7 million, according to bankruptcy filings.
According to documents filed in bankruptcy court in Delaware, 38 Studios entered into 13 separate leasing agreements with NFS from April 29, 2010, to July 20, 2011.
38 Studios, which is based in Rhode Island, rented computer equipment and software from NFS.
On its website, NFS names 38 Studios as the first company on its list of “success stories.”
It quotes 38 Studios CEO Rick Wester as saying, “In our early stages, NFS took the time to understand our strategy and offer flexible financial solutions tailored to our IT procurement needs. NFS has always been responsive and has exhibited a high level of transparency and integrity. They have worked to partner with 38 Studios, and as we look to our future with excitement at our growth prospects, it is nice to know that we can count on NFS to grow along with us and provide computer leasing when and where we need it.”
NFS Leasing did not return a call for comment.
