Unabomber Writings to Be Sold Online, Court Rules

A federal appeals court has ordered the writings of the Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski, be sold online.

Kaczynski is serving a life sentence for killing three people and injuring 23 during a nationwide bombing campaign between 1978 and 1995.

The appeals court's decision Friday upholds a lower court ruling on the matter.

Proceeds from the sale will be given to Kaczynski's victims and their survivors. A judge had ordered Kaczynski to pay $15 million restitution.

Representing himself, Kaczynski had objected to the online sale and argued that he should retain control of the papers.

The appeals court also ruled that bomb-making materials and instructions seized during Kaczynski's arrest and raid at his Montana cabin in 1996 should be destroyed.
