The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected without comment the conviction of former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy on bribery and fraud charges.
Scrushy had appealed his 2006 conviction for arranging $500,000 in donations to former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman's lottery campaign. In return, Siegelman appointed Scrushy to a state hospital regulatory board.
Scrushy argued that he should get a new trial because of judicial and juror bias.
Scrushy served more than five years in prison before his release in 2012. Siegelman, convicted with Scrushy, remains in federal prison.
