New Details: Judge freezes Scrushy's assets

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -- A judge has frozen the assets of Healthsouth Corporation founder and former CEO Richard Scrushy. 

The judge already ordered Scrushy to pay $2.87 billion to company shareholders after being found liable for the fraud that nearly wrecked Healthsouth.

Freezing his assets makes it impossible for him to sell or conceal his holdings while the other side tries to collect.

Last week, Scrushy lost a civil lawsuit which accused him of leading the fraud at Healthsouth.

He's already serving 7 years in federal prison after being convicted of government corruption with former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.
