A federal jury deliberated a 20th day Monday in the trial of fired HealthSouth Corp. chief Richard Scrushy.

It was the jurors’ fourth day of work since the judge replaced a sick member with an alternate and told them to start over.

Prosecutors contend Scrushy directed a $2.7 billion earnings overstatement over seven years, but the defense blames Scrushy aides, including 15 former HealthSouth executives who pleaded guilty.

Scrushy is the first chief executive tried under the Sarbanes-Oxley corporate reporting law. He also is accused of conspiracy, false reporting, fraud and money laundering.
