An L.A. Superior Court Judge has denied the 'Oliver Twist' director's bid to have his case dismissed as he remains a fugitive outside the country.
Two years after being arrested in Swiss, the 'Carnage' director launches a documentary 'Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir' and finally receives his lifetime achievement award.
Samantha Geimer whom the director bedded while she was 13 said the court had overblown the case more than the crime Roman committed.
The moviemaker's sex charge did not affect his ability to impress critics with his work as he was selected by the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) as the best release of the year.
The actor whose extradition for a child sex charge trial in the U.S. was denied, supported his wife at a music festival in Switzerland.
Since the filmmaker only has the right to go to Poland, Switzerland and France, 'there is a good chance the shoot will be close-by,' playwright Yasmina Reza reveals.
Samantha Geimer, whom the filmmaker had sex with when she was 13, has publicly forgiven Polanski and wants the case to be dropped since he is not a threat anymore at 76 years old.
U.S. State Department spokesman Philip Crowley is planning to take further action to force Polanski to face justice.
After Swiss officials turned down a request to extradite the helmer because they can't rule out the possibility that there is a 'fault' in the plea, local and federal officials get disappointed.
Charlotte Lewis claimed the director sexually abused her 'in the worst possible way' in his Paris apartment and is now seeking for justice.
In order to prove that the director's extradition was based on false and incomplete statements, attorneys are requesting for testimony by Deputy District Attorney Roger Gunson.
Through his lawyer, Roman Polanski wants Swiss authorities to release him from house arrest 'regardless of the roar and unbearable pressure of an ill-informed public.'
Roman Polanski's lawyers have filed another appeal, asking California court to set the director free and hoping the case will not further drag on and cost the helmer more money.
