High court denies deportation stay for accused Nazi guard





The Supreme Court on Thursday denied a stay of deportation for alleged Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk, who faces a war crimes prosecution in Germany.

Justice John Paul Stevens without comment refused to intervene in the planned transfer from the United States.

Federal courts have all rejected his appeals, and the order from Stevens clears the way for the Justice Department to move ahead with the deportation. No date for the transfer has been set.
