Judge Dismisses Part of Hatch Suit


By Ronnet, 08/16/2001 

PROVIDENCE, R.I. Richard Hatch was arrested properly on a child abuse charge that later was dropped, but the "Survivor" winner may pursue a privacy complaint, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

U.S. District Court Judge Ernest Torres said there was no evidence Hatch, who gained national celebrity last year after winning $1 million on the CBS reality show's first season, was falsely arrested.

Torres said a civil claim by Hatch that his privacy was violated when Middletown police released to the media a statement by his son and a mug shot "was much more difficult to analyze." He set the matter for trial, which he said would take place soon.
