BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The Birmingham-area estate of Richard Scrushy could bring millions in an auction Monday.
Attorneys trying to collect a $2.8 billion judgment against Scrushy hope the estate in Vestavia Hills sells.
The Alabama Supreme Court's recent decision to turn down an appeal by the imprisoned HealthSouth Corp. founder cleared the way for the auction.
Scrushy's fleet of cars and his lake mansion already have been sold for more than $8 million total. The money will help pay a verdict stemming from a judge's decision that Scrushy led a huge accounting fraud while he was running the Birmingham-based HealthSouth.
