U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster had rejected the citizenship request just over two weeks ago, saying Demjanjuk lied about where he was during World War II. Demjanjuk’s attorney asked the judge Thursday to reconsider the request, saying he had not seen all the newly discovered documents that could help his cause.

The Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk was a Soviet Red Army soldier captured by the Germans in 1942. He was convicted in May by a German court that found he had served as a guard at the Nazis’ Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

Demjanjuk cannot leave Germany because he has no passport after being stripped of his U.S. citizenship ahead of his deportation to Germany in 2009.
