Roman Polanski Still Fighting for His Freedom


After living on the lam for 32 years, it's not really a surprise that Roman Polanski is fighting like hell to get his case thrown out. Or, you know, his lawyer is. Earlier today Polanski's attorney tried to get the District Court of California to quickly decide Polanski's fate rather than let him rot in a Swiss jail. But district attorney Steve Cooley said that since Polanski is fighting the extradition, the Court of Appeals can't really help him. Which is probably a huge relief for them. [Arts Beat/NYT]
