Auction of Scrushy's Lake Estate Set in Alabama

DADEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Richard Scrushy's multimillion dollar lakefront estate is going up for auction to help pay an almost $2.9 billion court judgment against the imprisoned HealthSouth Corp. founder.

Tallapoosa County Sheriff Jimmy Abbett on Wednesday said Scrushy's 13,000-square-foot home at Lake Martin will go up for sale on Nov. 9. County records say the property is worth $6.2 million.

Two of Scrushy's boats, a golf cart and several personal watercraft will be up for auction on Oct. 19.

The property is being sold to help pay the judgment against Scrushy for his role in the HealthSouth fraud. His 19 cars previously sold for more than $850,000.

Scrushy is serving time in federal prison in a state bribery scheme.
