Next on 'Boston Legal'...

A day in former Gov. Don Siegelman's federal corruption trial just wouldn't be complete without a courtroom brouhaha, and Tuesday didn't fail to satisfy. After a lawyer for HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy, one of Siegelman's co-defendants, asked several questions to which the prosecution objected, the lead prosecutor called the lawyer "a sleaze." The attorneys then got all up in each other's grills before the judge defused tensions.

Emotionally charged outburst aside, the prosecution got right into the heart of its case Tuesday, eliciting testimony from former Siegelman aide Nick Bailey that the governor appointed Scrushy to the state hospital Certificate of Need Review Board after receiving a $250,000 check. Siegelman's lawyer vowed to shred the testimony on cross-examination.
