Scrushy civil case far cry from criminal trial
Associated Press, May 18, 2009
Richard Scrushy's federal criminal trial, which ended in his acquittal, was an entertaining, white-collar whodunit. Four years later, the civil trial of a shareholder lawsuit seeking $2.6 billion from the disgraced HealthSouth Corp. chief executive isn't making nearly the same splash. There's few fireworks and no crowd this time, despite the huge amount of money at stake in the trial, according to this article from the Associated Press.
