Scrushy back in Alabama for testimony

COLUMBIANA, Ala. (AP) - Fired HealthSouth Corp. chief executive
Richard Scrushy is out of a federal prison in Texas and back in
Alabama.

Records show Scrushy was being held at the Shelby County jail in
Columbiana on Friday.

He's scheduled to testify as early as Monday in a civil lawsuit filed over the fraud that nearly ruined the rehabilitation company he founded.

The investor lawsuit seeks money from Scrushy for the fraud. But
Scrushy was acquitted in the scheme during a criminal trial nearly
four years ago, and he continues to deny any wrongdoing.

Scrushy was later imprisoned for his conviction in a state
bribery scheme involving former Gov. Don Siegelman.

He has served about two years of a seven-year prison term.
