(03/02/19)-One of the largest and oldest neo-Nazi groups in the U.S. appears to have an unlikely new leader: A black activist who has vowed to dismantle it.

A court filing Thursday suggests James Hart Stern wants to use his new position as director and president of the National Socialist Movement to undermine the Detroit-based group's defense against a lawsuit.

The extremist group was sued over bloodshed at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.

Stern's filing asks a federal court in Virginia to issue a judgment against the neo-Nazi group before trial for a rally violence lawsuit.

Michigan corporate records indicate Stern replaced Jeff Schoep as the Detroit-based group's leader in January.

Corporate and court records don't explain how or why Stern got the position.

Stern and Schoep didn't respond to requests for comment.
