UPDATE ~ Scrushy juror replaced; deliberations to start over

[JURIST] After meeting with lawyers from both sides earlier today [JURIST report], US District Judge Karon Bowdre ordered a juror replaced in the fraud trial of former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy [JURIST news archive], citing health reasons that interrupted deliberations. The replacement and Bowdre's instruction to the jury that they must start their deliberations all over again will further delay an already-lengthy case that went to the original jury on May 19.
