EXECUTIVES ON TRIAL
Key HealthSouth Documents
Might Have Gone to Shredder
By CARRICK MOLLENKAMP
Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET
Nine days after the Securities and Exchange
Commission began investigating insider-trading
allegations at HealthSouth Corp. last year, attorneys
working for the company's board discovered evidence
that documents which might be relevant to the SEC
probe were shredded.
According to an Oct. 29, 2002, internal report by the
Houston law firm Fulbright & Jaworski LLP, the
shredding was discovered in a room containing the
files of four former executives, three of whom have
since pleaded guilty to criminal charges related to
accounting fraud at HealthSouth.

documents to DA's office
The Texas Association of Business delivered reams of documents to the
Travis County District Attorney's Office on Monday -- all records related to
its controversial $1.9 million advertising campaign during the 2002 elections.
Before the files were delivered to the district attorney, all information that
would identify corporate or individual donors was removed, according to the
association. Travis County District Judge Mike Lynch allowed TAB to
remove donor information from the documents.
