Ex-CEO Scrushy asks court to throw out
conviction
by Bob Johnson of Associated Press

Former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy has asked a federal
appeals court to overturn his conviction in a government corruption
case, saying in part that jurors violated court rules by communicating
with each other by e-mail.

Scrushy Files Appellate Brief
White Collar Crime Professional Blog

Richard Scrushy, former CEO of HealthSouth, filed his appellate brief
in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ....  The 118 page brief is
detailed, with key arguments focused on the following areas:

  • No quid pro quo on the campaign contribution that is alleged to
    be related to an appointment & refusal by the court to give an
    instruction on the McCormick quid pro quo requirement  
  • Juror misconduct including juror use of the Internet
  • Judicial conflict and failure to disclose the alleged conflict
  • Jury composition challenge
  • Admission of hearsay testimony
  • Statute of limitations problem with one count

Scrushy also joins in the arguments raised by former Alabama
Governor Seligman [sic] in his brief.  As with Seligman's [sic] brief, the
fascinating issue is the lack of a showing or a quid pro quo when a
campaign contribution formed the essence of the alleged criminality.
