Lawyers for “Survivor” show winner and “naked guy” Richard Hatch say he’s being unconstitutionally held in prison because federal rules limiting prisoners’ media contact do not apply to prisoners in home confinement.

The lawyers say the U.S. Bureau of Prisons threw Hatch into solitary confinement on Aug. 18 because he criticized the government in television interviews conducted during his home confinement for a tax-evasion conviction. During the interviews, Hatch claimed that his case involved prosecutorial misconduct because government officials pressed charges against him partly because he’s gay. Hatch also claimed he was wrongfully convicted.
