About a year after the Academy expelled Roman Polanski, citing “ethical standards,” the Oscar winner French-Polish film director and actor has sued the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and is demanding his reinstatement.

Lawyers for the 85-year-old fugitive director petitioned Los Angeles Superior Court to compel the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to make him a member in good standing again, reports DailyMail.co.uk. The five-page filing states that by not giving Polanski sufficient notice of his expulsion, and not giving he or his lawyer to argue his case in person during the appeal, the academy “failed to comply with its own rules, policies and regulations.”

 

The academy responded with a brief statement saying, “The procedures taken to expel Mr Polanski were fair and reasonable. The Academy stands behind its decision as appropriate (sic).”
