Another E-Mail Appears in the Scrushy-Siegelman Case

The post-trial phase of the prosecution of former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy and former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman just keeps dragging on, and each month seemingly brings a new purported e-mail between two jurors that could show the deliberations were tainted by outside influences.  The defendants' new trial motion based on other e-mails was rejected, in part because the e-mails were never authenticated as involving the jurors.  More e-mails appeared in December as part of a motion for reconsideration, and now another one (here) has shown up.  Whether any of this will make a difference is still hard to tell, but the more time that elapses the more these e-mails seem to materialize.  A story on WSFA TV-12 in Montgomery, Alabama, notes (here) that there may be an "email fairy" in the vicinity.
