BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Jailed former HealthSouth Corp. chief
executive Richard Scrushy is asking the court to allow him to sell
assets to pay for household expenses and his family.
In a recent court filing, Scrushy asks that some of his assets
be unfrozen to pay for expenses related to some of his eight
children, other family members and his employees.
His net worth, which is unknown, is under a court-ordered hold after HealthSouth shareholders won a $2.8 billion civil lawsuit against Scrushy last month.
An Alabama judge found the 56-year-old Selma native liable for
leading a $2.6 billion fraud at HealthSouth from 1996 to 2002.
Scrushy still maintains he knew nothing about it.
