LOS ANGELES — A California appeals court on Thursday denied Roman Polanski's latest attempt to end his decades-old sex case, a move that could set the stage for the fugitive director's return to the US

The California 2nd District Court of Appeal denied Polanski's petition to sentence the fugitive director in absentia. Polanski's appeal also had sought the appointment of a special counsel to investigate misconduct into the director's case.The court's decision not to revisit Polanski's case came hours after it denied a request by Polanski's victim, Samantha Geimer, to have the case dismissed.



Swiss authorities have said they were awaiting the decision by the court on Polanski's appeal before deciding whether to extradite the director. He is under house arrest in the luxury resort of Gstaad.
