Scrushy Wants To See Books
By Alabama Public Radio
Birmingham, AL – Scrushy is demanding access to books and records seen by other directors. Scrushy says he decided to voice his concerns about HealthSouth's direction when the Birmingham company this week announced earnings that were lower than expected. Scrushy is still on the board, but it has met in a special committee that excludes him since he was fired as C-E-O in March 2003. The move came after federal prosecutors revealed HealthSouth had overstated 2-point-6 billion dollars in profit while Scrushy was in charge. Scrushy was acquitted on criminal charges in the accounting scheme.
