Skip to comments.Levi-Bristol custody fight over Palin grandchild will be public

"Johnston fought to allow the custody matter to unfold in public, saying in a sworn statement that doing so would help put everyone on best behavior. He noted that Van Flein also represents Sarah Palin.
"I know that public scrutiny will simplify this matter and act as a check against anyone's need to be overly vindictive, aggressive or malicious, not that Bristol would ever be that way, nor that I would. But her mother is powerful, politically ambitious and has a reputation for being extremely vindictive," Johnston said in his affidavit. "So, I think a public case might go a long way in reducing Sarah Palin's instinct to attack."
Johnston said he didn't want to hurt or embarrass his son -- or Bristol. He thinks Sarah Palin, not Bristol, is acting with "sheer malice," Butler wrote in a court filing.
"He feels Sarah Palin, through her lawyer, under the guise of Bristol Palin's name, would run roughshod over his very bones," Butler wrote."

He's a steaming dung pile, and worthless as a father.
All the more reason that the judge should have kept the proceedings secret. The language the young man used in the affidavit was a huge red flag. One must wonder why an experienced judge would allow a 19 year old brat to determine such an important aspect of this custody case.
This type of case is always heard in private.
Really. I sat on a custody case jury and that wasn’t in private but rather open court. This was in Texas so don’t know what the law says up Alaska way.
As far as I’m concerned, the judge made a very foolish decision and I question whether she has the common sense required to be a judge.
As for that idiot Levi, poor Tripp is saddled with him forever. When Tripp is old enough to realize just what harm his father willingly and knowingly brought to both Sarah’s and Bristol’s reputations, I think Levi will be out of luck.
Sooner or later that little boy will be old enough to realize his dad is a loser. Levi should think about that now and do what is right for his child, namely keeping these proceedings sealed.
Hey Levi, you need to get off the crack.
All that the non-achieving loser Levi has done, since he broke up with Bristol, is be nothing but vindictive, aggressive and malicious.. in addition to posing naked for depraved gay magazines.
The only one who is a bigger whore than Levi Johnson is Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana.
This appears to more about a lawyer making his bones than Levi vs. Sarah.
Note to Levi: Get a new lawyer. An OLD lawyer. A GENTLEMAN lawyer.
“He is an easy mark and useful tool for the compassionate and nuanced left hit groups.”
With luck, Levi will end up being adopted by Cindy Sheehan when the Dems have dropped him:)
The daughter shouldn't have been anywhere near Levy.

Let this little boy-child-daddy have the baby for a weekend without the baby’s mother! A long crying jag and a pile of poopy diapers should take care of that ole ‘custody’ thang.
Common sense ain't got nuthin’ to do with it.
A rather large sum from George Soros, secretly slipped in an envelope into her pockets, has everything to do with it.
Let me get this straight. You have been all over television slamming the lady on any show that would paste your smarmy face, you've posed nude for Playgirl, you have appeared on the red carpet with that @#$% Kathy Griffin, and all Sarah has said is that yes, you would be welcome for Thanksgiving dinner. Yeah, right, white trash boy, she's vindictive.
Levi says he wants this public to keep all parties civil.
He says Sarah has a reputation for being vindictive. There’s one I have not heard, yet.
No, I think he wants the celebrity. He posed for a gay men’s magazine and he’s in line for a new reality show in Alaska. Can it be any more obvious?
This kid is a mindless twit. His life will surely end early and in pathetic fashion.
Actually, you may want to check the stats on being raised in a single parent household and who fares better, those raised only by dad or mom.
He might ask Cindy Sheehan what happens to people who become an embarrassment to liberals after they have outlived their usefulness. Dude, your 15 minutes are up and have been for some time.
How is going public going to help everyone remain civil?
How could a judge fall for this crap?
And who in their right mind believes that it is any of their business?
In a way I feel sorry for him. He is too stupid to realize what is happening to him. When he can no longer be used... whoever is using him will throw him in the trash heap like yesterday's garbage. What a degrading, humiliating lesson that will be.
Agreed. I am the father of two amazing children and I couldn’t imagine giving up my children. I don’t care what I had to do...I would keep my children. Can’t imagine life without them.
Ah, how sad . . . you wish to apply reason, logic and common sense to a situation being manipulated by Democrats. When will we ever learn? sigh
The dynamic being created by the Johnston sock puppet is infuriating to say the least.
