Polanski Petition Update

I've shared my opinion on the Polanski Petition -- signed by a number of people in the film industry -- previously:

Facts Matter
Polanski Update
“The director of the documentary told me..."
Less Hypothetically
So Far In The Past
Now there's a little new news:

Judge: Polanski must come to L.A. to be sentenced in child-sex case
A judge has rejected director Roman Polanski's bid to be sentenced in absentia in a three-decade-old child-sex case. Judge Peter Espinoza ruled that Polanski, 76, will have to come back to Los Angeles to be sentenced. "I have made it clear he needs to surrender," the judge said.
So, do the signers of the Polanski Petition feel strongly enough to stand behind the director as the proceedings move to the courts?
