Neo-Nazi group loses bid to inherit $250K coin collection

A court decision to bar an American white supremacist organization from inheriting an estimated $250,000 coin and artifact collection from a New Brunswick man is being commended by a Canadian Jewish organization.

Robert McCorkill had willed the items to the National Alliance, based in West Virginia, before he died in Saint John in 2004.
