The World

Lawyers for John Demjanjuk, the retired U.S. auto worker accused of being the Nazi death camp guard known as "Ivan the Terrible," say they will ask Israel's Supreme Court today to remove the judges hearing their client's war crimes trial because they are biased.

Many times during the trial, the judges have reprimanded, interrupted and overruled defense lawyers.
