Scrushy jury can’t agree on verdict, asks for `layman’s terms’

by Toby Lucich on May 25, 2005

Jurors in the fraud trial of fired HealthSouth Corp. CEO Richard Scrushy told the judge Tuesday they couldn’t reach a verdict and needed an explanation “in layman terms.”

The message came in a three-sentence note passed to U.S. District Judge Karon Bowdre during the fourth day of deliberations.

The handwritten note said: “We cannot unanimously agree on a verdict. We need an explanation in layman terms. We would like your explanation in private if possible.”
