Film director Roman Polanski is suing the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, demanding reinstatement to the storied organization after he was expelled last May.
The suit, filed in the state of California, says AMPAS did not follow proper protocol in dismissing him nearly a year ago. The Academy did so in accordance with the organizations Standards of Conduct, they said at the time, adding their leadership expected members to uphold the Academys values of respect for human dignity.
Polanskis suit says the Academys expulsion decision is not supported by findings, and the Academys findings are not supported by evidence. The eight-time Oscar winner wants the decision reversed and the Academy to pay costs incurred by the suit.
An Academy spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Suspension or expulsion from the group, which picks the annual Academy Award winners, requires two-thirds approval of the 54-member board of governors.

Oh, that's right, he'd be arrested upon setting foot in the US.
if he molests some more kids, they’ll make him president.
It wasn’t rape rape.
Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein have all vouched for his character.
The Cosby Show is still on TV all the time.
He cant be President. He is not a citizen.
They should make him President of their society. He reprezents the values of Hollywood perfectly.
talk about a narcissistic pervert. He raped a young girl, never did the time, and his Hollywood friends didn’t care a whit for 30 years. they kissed his butt, financed his movies, gave him Academy awards and now he’s complaining?
I happen to think he’s a great director, very sympathetic for his experience as a Holocaust survivor, having his wife murdered etc. But no excuse for what be did and no excise for his escaping justice
It would be great if one of these bounty hunter-types could abduct him and drop him on American soil. Dump him in a dingy warehouse and call the cops saying there’s drug dealing going on. Pay a streetwalker with nothing to lose to be in the same room. She gets her 15 minutes of fame and the POlice have to do their job. It was my idea when Monica and Bill would do their rendezvous.
The creep has a very bad luck cloud following him around. He attracts chaos like a harbinger of satan. It would be good to use his karma by moving him to where our enemies live.
Well, Joy Behar would vote for him.
I wonder if Polanski ever wishes he was a female teacher.
He could have married his underage conquest and deliberarely gotten pregnant by the student, and even sued him for child support. Like they do today.
If I was the judge, I’d set a status conference, and require clients as well as attorneys to appear in person. If he didn’t show up, I’d sanction his attorneys.
