MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments as former Health South CEO Richard Scrushy appeals a lower court decision denying his request for a new trial of his 2006 conviction in a government corruption case.

Former Alabama Gov Don Siegelman was also found guilty in that case and is serving a sentence in a federal prison in Louisiana. Scrushy is out of prison and living in Houston after having completed his sentence.

Siegelman and Scrushy were accused of taking part in a scheme in which Scrushy was allegedly appointed to a hospital regulatory board in exchange for arranging for $500,000 in contributions to Siegelman's campaign for a lottery.

The hearing for Scrushy is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Montgomery federal courthouse.
