Scrushy Loses Appeal of HealthSouth Civil Judgment

Richard Scrushy, the HealthSouth Corp. founder jailed in 2007 for bribery and mail fraud, lost his appeal of a $2.88 billion civil verdict against him for accounting fraud at his former company.

The Alabama Supreme Court today upheld the judgment against Scrushy, who remains in a federal prison in Texas for bribing former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.
