      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.
