Loose lips get dragged before the bar

The Wall Street Journal recently had a nice chat about a dismissed juror with two unnamed lawyers in the criminal case against former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy. The judge, whose gag order forbade such conversations, was not amused.

After closing arguments wrap up 16 weeks of testimony, the jury will begin its deliberations Thursday. Scrushy could spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted of 36 criminal counts, including mail fraud, securities fraud, and wire fraud.
