Lawyers for the once fugitive and recently apprehended film director Roman Polanski argued before the California Court of Appeal that the lower court erred in throwing out Polanski’s case last month. The lower court held that Polanski could not make his appeal without first surrendering to the authorities and appearing in court. The 2nd District Court of Appeal upheld the decision. Polanski’s only chance to clear his name now rests with appearing before the court in California and resubmitting the appeal.

Although the court refused to consider the appeal while Polanski remains in Switzerland, the 3 judge panel said the allegations raised in the case were serious and urged prosecutors to investigate and respond to the claims.

For the moment he remains in Switzerland, awaiting the outcome of extradition hearings.
