Now For Sale: Richard Scrushy's Stuff!

Remember Richard Scrushy?

 

He’s the HealthSouth founder who was called the “CEO of fraud” and ordered to pay nearly $2.9 billion to shareholders because of a massive accounting deceit that nearly bankrupt the rehabilitation chain. That’s after he was acquitted in a federal criminal case over related charges, found Jesus, became a televangelist — and nearly got away with it all.

See all the amazing things he bought with the money>

Now, he’s serving a nearly seven-year sentence for a 2006 conviction in a separate state government bribery case (he paid the governor for a seat on a state health care policy board). But lawyers are still trying to use of the remnants of his lavish lifestyle to pay down his massive civil penalty.

A recent auction of 19 cars raised $850,000 and the sale of a yacht, “Chez Soiree,” is pending, but yesterday, Scrushy’s lakefront estate in Alabama and other items effectively went up for bidding.

AP: Imprisoned HealthSouth Corp. founder Richard Scrushy’s lakefront estate in Alabama is going up for auction to help pay an almost-$2.9 billion court judgment.

Tallapoosa County Sheriff Jimmy Abbett said Wednesday that Scrushy’s 13,000-square-foot home at Lake Martin will go up for sale 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 Oct. 19.

We did a little digging to see what some the targeted items look like. The list is immense — see here and here from the Birmingham News, including a Picasso, a Lamborghini and two Cessna planes — but here’s a sampling in photos.

As CNBC reported, it’s is one of Scruhsy’s four mansions. The home is on Lake Martin, 80 miles southeast of Birmingham. It’s ‘by far the biggest house on the lake,’ and Scrushy’s neighbours apparently call the mansion ‘the World’s Largest La Quinta Inn.’

But as the Birmingham Business Journal reports, HealthSouth is asking a circuit court judge for a temporary restraining order on the sale of the yacht because Scrushy claims he does not own it. He says a Cayman Islands-based firm bearing his middle name, Marin Ltd., does, and the true owner still needs to be determined by the court. Either way, it sounds like Scrushy’s.
