Richard Scrushy asks for prison release on appeal bond

AP/Birmingham News, July 19, 2010

Former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy is seeking release from federal prison on appeal bond in light of a U.S. Supreme Court decision last month that ordered a review of his government corruption convictions and those of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman. Scrushy asked a federal appeals court to reconsider its January 2008 order denying him appeal bond. Scrushy's attorneys say in the new motion that he is now broke because of $2.8 billion judgment against him in a lawsuit by HealthSouth shareholders and no longer has the means or motivation to flee. Prosecutors had said he was a flight risk.
