Former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy will be leaving a federal prison in Texas.

Today, Scrushy’s attorneys dropped their appeal of an order for Scrushy to provide a deposition in a lawsuit involving HealthSouth stockholders.

Scrushy was ordered to be available to testify beginning on Monday.

Scrushy’s attorneys objected to moving him from Texas to be housed in federal custody, possibly at the Shelby County jail.   Lawyers called the move harassment.
