former AGs file brief in Siegelman case
by Chris Rizo of Legal Newsline

....
In court papers, the former attorneys general said it was not against
the law for Siegelman to appoint former HealthSouth CEO Richard
Scrushy to a hospital regulatory board after Scrushy arranged for
$500,000 in donations to Siegelman's campaign for a statewide lottery.

They said there was no agreement between the governor and
Scrushy concerning the appointment.

"This case concerns the criminalization of conduct protected by the
First Amendment - the giving and receiving of campaign
contributions," the group's amicus brief said.

Last month, a group of nine law professors filed a similar brief with the
high court, raising First Amendment issues. The group of professors
were represented by Jesse Choper of the University of California at
Berkeley School of Law.
