Scrushy Ordered to Repay $47.8M in Bonuses

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Allwin E. Horn III said the bonuses were undeserved because they were based on erroneous financial reports.

"Scrushy was unjustly enriched by these payments to the detriment of HealthSouth and to allow Scrushy to retain the benefit of these payments would be unconscionable," Horn writes.

Scrushy's attorney Kile Turner says Scrushy will appeal.

"We believe the ruling is in error in that no state or federal court ... has ever made a finding on the basis cited in this case," Turner says in a statement.

Last year, a federal jury acquitted Scrushy on all charges. In his defense, Scrushy said subordinates orchestrated a scheme to inflate profits without his knowledge, the news service reports.
