Professor John ChungPROVIDENCE, June 6, 2013 — A “neutral” financial analyst scheduled to talk to House lawmakers Thursday about the ramifications of defaulting on the 38 Studios debt has ties to companies involved in the deal. [...]

They include John Chung, a professor at Roger Williams University School of Law, and Gary Sasse, founding director of the Hassenfeld Center for Public Leadership at Bryant University.

From RHODE ISLAND'S FUTURE: "38 Studio loan default makes for strange bedfellows" by Bob Plain

PROVIDENCE, June 6, 2013 — As legislative leaders draw criticism for only inviting one perspective to speak today about defaulting on the 38 Studios loan, Occupy Providence, an activist collective, and the Stephen Hopkins Center, a libertarian group, have joined forces to sponsor an event that offers a pretty good diversity of opinion.

WJAR’s Bill Rappleye will moderate a panel debate at the State House today at 2:30. Panelists include Gary Sasse, former executive director of the RIPEC and senior adviser to Governor Don Carcieri, RI Future contributor Tom Sgouros, Bob Cusack a former public finance investment banker, John Chung, a Roger Williams law school professor and Elaine Heebner, for a citizen’s perspective.
