BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Despite a last minute request by attorneys to delay the auction of Richard Scrushy's seized vehicles, the auction will go on as planned.
Scrushy's attorneys argued the auction should be delayed because it was not properly advertised on the courthouse doors as required by law. The attorneys also asked Judge Allwin Horn for the auction to be held at Scrushy's Vestavia Hills Home. Judge Horn ruled against both motions and said the auction will go on as planned at noon Thursday at Weil Wrecker Service in Birmingham.
19 cars, including a 1929 Cadillac will be auctioned off beginning at noon. The cars were seized by the sheriff after a $2.8 billion dollar judgement went against Scrushy.
