Robert Downey Jr. won't be allowed to leave jail again this week to work on the movie "In Dreams," an appeals court ruled Thursday.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department had complained the actor was given star treatment by a judge.A three-judge state appeals court effectively overruled the controversial decision by Malibu Municipal Court Judge Lawrence J. Mira, who agreed to spring Downey from jail on Friday for the actor's fourth daylong film furlough.

The Oscar-nominated star of "Chaplin" is serving a six-month sentence for violating terms of his probation and using drugs.
