PITTSBURGH (AP) -- As U.S. authorities continue a long legal battle to deport a former Nazi concentration camp guard, it's not clear what will happen next if they prevail.

Anton Geiser, now 88, has been living in the small western Pennsylvania town of Sharon for more than 50 years. He didn't even tell his family about the Nazi service until 2004, when the Justice Department began legal proceedings.

Geiser's lawyer will be appealing a deportation order next week before the Board of Immigration Appeals in Falls Church, Va.

But Kurt Schrimm, the head of the special prosecutors' office in Germany that investigates Nazi war crimes, says they aren't currently investigating Geiser's case, and the Austrian Justice Ministry says it hasn't corresponded with American authorities.
