Roman Polanski is threatening to sue the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for kicking him out last week.
The convicted sex offender’s lawyer on Tuesday sent the Oscar-awarding film organization’s president a letter arguing the group violated the law by expelling Polanski without giving him a chance to “present his side” — and demanding that he be reinstated.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I am writing this letter to you to avoid unnecessary litigation,” Polanski’s attorney Harland Braun wrote to president John Bailey in the letter, which was published online by Deadline.
“Mr. Polanski has a right to go to court and require your organization to follow its own procedures, as well as California law. The only proper solution would be for your organization to rescind its illegal expulsion of Mr. Polanski and follow its own Standards of Conduct by giving Mr. Polanski reasonable notice of the charges against him and a fair hearing to present his position with respect to any proposed expulsion.”
