Demjanjuk’s appeal for reconsideration "rehashes old arguments" and "is nothing more than an effort to prolong this litigation by any means necessary," the government said in a filing Thursday night in U.S. District Court.

Demjanjuk, 91, who lived for many years in Seven Hills in suburban Cleveland, was convicted by a German court on more than 28,000 counts of accessory to murder. The court found he had worked as a guard at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland.
