The hearing on whether ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling violated state lobbying laws before clinching the deal that gave 38 Studios a $75 million state-backed loan will not take place Thursday.  Lawyers for Schilling said his client could not attend because of his health.  Schilling is in remission from cancer.

Secretary of State Ralph Mollis' office had scheduled separate hearings Thursday for Schilling and ex-38 Studios director Thomas Zaccagnino, but their lawyers have asked for a continuance.

Schilling's lawyer says he can't attend because of his health. He is in remission from cancer but has had "substantial side effects" from treatment.

A lawyer for attorney Michael Corso said a similar proceeding last week was improper because Mollis hadn't investigated whether Corso did any lobbying before he convened it.

38 Studios went bankrupt. Its collapse is the subject of a state agency lawsuit.
