A Los Angeles judge has denied director Roman Polanski’s latest bid to have his 1977 sex case dismissed.

A nine-page order issued by Superior Court Judge James Brandlin states that Polanski’s claims of judicial misconduct and his bid to dismiss the case cannot be addressed because he remains a fugitive outside the country after pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a minor in 1977.

Polanski’s lawyers have sought a public evidentiary hearing for the case claiming a judge who handled the matter in 2008 and 2009 committed misconduct.

Judge Brandlin’s order states Polanski has other options, including returning to California to address his claims.
