Roman Polanski, Swiss Waiting on L.A.
Hey, so what's new with Roman Polanski? For starters, he's still under house arrest in Gstaad, where he awaits a ruling on extradition to the U.S. But the Swiss justice ministry announced Wednesday that it won't make a ruling until an L.A. judge rules on whether Polanski's judicial-misconduct appeal can be heard without the filmmaker present. That decision is forthcoming eventually; no hearing date is scheduled yet. No rush, gang. [NYT]
