Judge: No hearing on bomber’s bid for book money

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Associated Press) — A judge in Alabama refused Tuesday to hold a hearing on whether Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph gets to keep money from sales of the autobiography he wrote in prison.

U.S. District Judge Lynwood Smith issued a brief order denying a request by Rudolph.

Rudolph recently filed a request seeking about $200 the government seized from sales of the book, which he wrote behind bars and published with the help of his brother through an online company.

The judge said Rudolph, 46, gave up any money from publications in his plea agreement, so no hearing was needed.
