Rudolph, serving a life sentence for bombings that killed two people in Alabama and Georgia in the 1990s, sought a hearing to contest the seizure in a letter filed last week in federal court in Birmingham.
A judge had not ruled on the request Tuesday.
Peggy Sanford, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, told AL.com that prosecutors have received more than $200 from the North Carolina-based LuLu Press Inc., which stopped selling the book shortly after it was published.
Rudolph, 46, pleaded guilty to detonating a bomb at a downtown park during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He also pleaded guilty to setting off a bomb outside an abortion clinic in downtown Birmingham in 1998.
Rudolph still owes more than $1 million in restitution, prosecutors said in a court filing, and money from the book will go to settle that debt. The 394-page book, titled Between the Lines of Drift: The Memoirs of a Militant, was published with the help of brother Daniel K.
Eric Rudolph recently sent letters to his defense attorney and others saying he was on a hunger strike to protest his treatment at the federal prison where he is held in isolation in Florence, Colo.
