A federal judge on Wednesday will resentence former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy after the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals tossed out two of his convictions in a government corruption case. A federal jury in 2006 convicted Scrushy and former Gov. Don Siegelman of bribery and honest services fraud. Prosecutors accused Scrushy of buying a seat on a hospital regulatory board by arranging $500,000 in donations to Siegelman's signature political issue, a campaign to establish a state lottery.
