Filmmaker Polanski's Lawyers Seek Sex Crime Case Dismissal: U.S. Newspapers


U.S. newspapers reported on Tuesday, lawyers for filmmaker Roman Polanski are seeking to have a case involving a 1977 charge of unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl dismissed. The Los Angeles Times reported, Polanski’s lawyers are seeking a hearing to decide whether misconduct and a “false” extradition request sent by the U.S. Justice Department to the Polish government on Oct. 28 requires the case to be dismissed. Citing court papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, the Times said Polanski’s attorneys were arguing that prosecutors and judges carried out “serious misconduct” in seeking Polanski’s return to the United States.
