American citizens ripping off American citizens.BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—- HealthSouth shareholder attorneys are asking a judge to place sanctions on Richard Scrushy for property being stripped from his Vestavia Hills and Lake Martin residences.
In a motion filed Tuesday afternoon, lawyers claimed that “entire rooms had been stripped” from Scrushy’s Vestavia Hills mansion as of last Wednesday.
They argue furniture, art, drapes and other furnishings had been removed along with antiques and silverware from both his Vestavia Hills home and his Lake Martin property.
Shareholder attorneys are trying to seize Scrushy’s property to satisfy a $2.8 billion court judgment after a judge ruled in June that Scrushy directed HealthSouth’s massive accounting fraud scandal.
