Dershowitz Seeks To End Polanski Case

While Mrs. Bill Cosby plays The Good Wife in the Bill Cosby parade of (increasingly corroborated) allegations, Alan Dershowitz, the famed celebrity lawyer, is involved in another case of sexual misconduct. Dershowitz and his team filed a motion in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday asking permission to represent director Roman Polanski in California. Polanski, 81, is looking to end the statutory rape case against him, which led to him fleeing the U.S. in 1978 before final sentencing. The filing charged prosecutors with providing false information in support of a recent attempt to have Polanski extradited from Poland. The filing also demands a hearing to close the case, based in part on fresh testimony that Judge Peter Espinoza, the Superior Court judge in 2009, acted unethically and prejudiced matters related to Polanski’s case and further concocted a secret plan to jail the director briefly.
