Richard Scrushy is back in Alabama. The former Healthsouth CEO is currently in the Shelby County Jail, after a judge ordered him to move from a federal prison in Texas.
Scrushy next week will answer questions under oath in Birmingham Federal Court regarding fraud allegations, in a lawsuit filed by HealthSouth Stockholders.
This will be the first time Scrushy has testified under oath regarding the HealthSouth fraud.
Scrushy has served almost one year of a 6 year 10 month prison sentence in an unrelated case, for bribing former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.
