HANS FILBINGER, 93 German leader

Hans Filbinger, a former governor of Germany's Baden-Wuerttemberg state who resigned amid revelations about his past as a Nazi-era naval judge, has died at his home in Freiburg, the state government said. It did not specify the cause of death.

Mr. Filbinger, a member of the conservative Christian Democrats, governed Baden-Wuerttemberg, a prosperous region in Germany's southwest, from 1966 until his past emerged as an issue in 1978, prompting his resignation in August of that year.
