A circuit judge in Alabama has ordered former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy to pay $2.9 billion to shareholders due to accounting fraud at the rehabilitation chain. Scrushy was acquitted in a federal criminal case over the fraud and testified in the state civil suit that he knew nothing about it.
