Abstract:

William Cast details the journey of HealthSouth celebrity CEO and founder Richard Scrushy, from the boardroom to the courtroom, as the first executive to be indicted- and acquitted- for accounting fraud under the new Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Cast, a nationally recognized physician and business partner of HealthSouth, describes the power of new technology that uncovered corporate accounting fraud at the company, one of the nation's largest providers of outpatient healthcare services. This fast-paced expose shows how online whistle blowers were able to uncover the company deceit, and how small investors who had lost everything in HealthSouth increased their holdings by trading on a Web site dedicated to over-the -counter securities. - Publisher.
