Ex-HealthSouth Chief Scrushy Wins Reversal on Two Counts

Richard Scrushy, the former chief executive officer of HealthSouth Corp., won reversal of two convictions from his 2006 criminal trial, while the U.S. appeals court affirmed four other counts.

The appellate panel in Atlanta sent the case back to the trial court for resentencing today after reviewing the charges for a second time. The U.S. Supreme Court ordered the re-examination last year after narrowing the scope of a federal law making it a crime to deprive citizens and shareholders of the honest services of public and corporate officers.
