The Scrushy case was the first case of its kind, as never before had a CEO been charged under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Gillis ad the Scrushy team successfully defended against the government’s efforts to criminally prosecute Scrushy and to freeze Scrushy’s assets, estimated to total more than $295 million. The strength and delivery of the defense’s arguments and their ability to successfully challenge the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses’ testimony let to a successful acquittal for Scrushy on all criminal charges stemming from the alleged $2.7 billion accounting fraud at the company he founded.
