Spain's National Court has agreed to accept a lawsuit that indicts four alleged former Nazi concentration camp guards. If the lawsuit is successful, it could result in the four men's extradition from the United States to face trial over the deaths of Spanish citizens. The court said Friday it would proceed with the lawsuit brought by Brussels-based rights organization, Equipo Nizkor. The lawsuit names John Demjanjuk, an 88-year-old retired auto worker in Ohio who is also being sought by Germany, as well as Anton Tittjung, Josias Kumpf and Johann Leprich.
