As noted here, the SEC dismissed the fraud counts against Richard Scrushy, former CEO of HealthSouth. But also noted is that although Scrushy was found not guilty in his federal trial brought by the government, there are now new federal charges in the Middle District of Alabama against him, this time he has a co-defendant, the former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.
With everything going on with respect to Richard Scrushy it was therefore easy to miss the announcement that the trial documents in the Scrushy case had been unsealed. This is especially true when it came the Wednesday right before Thanksgiving. We gave you a stay tuned back on September 7th here.
So what's there? According to the Birmingham News here, it looks like much about nothing. But one has to wonder how the government could be objecting to the defense calling Emery Harris as a witness at Scrushy's trial when they did exactly that in the trial of Hannibal "Sonny" Crumpler.
