Jailed HealthSouth founder's estate on Lake Martin to go on auction block

Dadeville, AL – (AP) - Richard Scrushy's multimillion dollar
lakefront estate is going up for auction to help pay an almost $2.9
billion court judgment against the imprisoned HealthSouth Corp.
founder.
Tallapoosa County Sheriff Jimmy Abbett on Wednesday said
Scrushy's 13,000-square-foot home at Lake Martin will go up for
sale on Nov. 9. County records say the property is worth $6.2
million.
Two of Scrushy's boats, a golf cart and several personal
watercraft will be up for auction on Oct. 19.
The property is being sold to help pay the judgment against
Scrushy for his role in the HealthSouth fraud. His 19 cars
previously sold for more than $850,000.
Scrushy is serving time in federal prison in a state bribery
scheme.
