LOS ANGELES (AP) - A California appeals court says it has rejected Roman Polanski's bid to have his sex case dismissed.

The California 2nd District Court of Appeal announced Monday it had denied the petition.

The court's Web site states an opinion was filed in the case, but it was not immediately available. The Web site states three justices agreed to reject Polanski's appeal.

Attorneys for the fugitive director argued earlier this month that misconduct in the case were grounds for dismissal of a charge of having unlawful sex with a minor.

Polanski is on house arrest at his Swiss chalet. He was arrested on a fugitive warrant in September.
