The Polish court system has once again blocked the government’s attempt to extradite Roman Polanski to the United States. On Tuesday, Poland’s Supreme Court denied the government’s appeal of an earlier decision by a lower court to refuse extradition of Polanski decades after his 1977 child sex conviction. The case had gone on for two years, but is now considered officially closed. Polanski is a dual citizen of Poland and France, and lives in the latter country, but got an apartment in Krakow in 2014 with plans to film a movie there.
