Federal court refuses to release former HealthSouth chief executive

Birmingham News, June 27, 2008

A federal appeals court has for the third time refused to release former HealthSouth Corp. CEO Richard Scrushy from prison while his conviction is being appealed. The Court of Appeals ruled that it was denying Scrushy's request for an appeal bond because the former CEO had not proved he is not a flight risk. Scrushy and former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman were convicted in 2006 of bribery and other charges.
