Former Health-South CEO Richard Scrushy wants a re-hearing in his case.
Last month, a three-judge panel denied Scrushy’s motions for a new trial and the recusal of the trial judge.
Scrushy’s lawyers filed a motion Friday asking the full U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals for a rehearing.
They argue, the three-judge panel failed to follow court precedents.
Scrushy was convicted in 2006 on bribery charges. Prosecutors say he arranged 500,000 dollars in donations to former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman’s lottery campaign in exchange for a seat on a state board.
Scrushy has finished his prison sentence. Siegelman is in Federal Prison in Louisiana.
