The Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered a new review of the convictions in the government corruption case against former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and ex-HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy. The Court's brief order vacated the decision of the 11th Circuit, which had upheld their convictions, and ordered the lower court to review the appeals in light of a ruling that went against what is known as the "honest services" fraud law. Siegelman attorney Sam Heldman called the Court's decision Tuesday "a massive victory."
