BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Lawyers for HealthSouth Corp. wrote in a court filing that Richard Scrushy's yacht should be surrendered immediately to the company and sold to help satisfy a $2.8 billion judgment.

Monday's filing in Jefferson County Circuit Court says the jailed former chief executive's 92-foot Chez Soiree is normally stored in North Palm Beach, Fla.

The filing says the boat, now in dry-dock in Stuart, Fla., should be turned over to help satisfy the civil judgment Scrushy was ordered to pay for leading the accounting fraud that nearly bankrupted the Birmingham-based company.

An exhibit to the filing says the boat needs maintenance and is "deteriorating daily." Lost value on the yacht means lost money for HealthSouth, which holds first claim to Scrushy's assets.
