levi johnston bristol palin wire Levi Johnston sued by Bristol Palin for custody of son TrippThe Alaska Dispatch is reporting that Bristol Palin filed a suit on Nov. 4 suing Levi Johnston for sole custody of their one-year-old son Tripp. Happy Birthday, Tripp! (Dec. 28 is his first birthday.)

The reason it’s just coming to light now? The judge denied Palin’s motion for the proceedings to be kept private, using John and Jane Doe in lieu of Johnston and Palin’s real names.

Johnston said in a statement that he hopes the public nature of the
proceedings will keep Sarah Palin out of it, saying that he and Bristol
can “work things out a lot more peacefully than we could if there is
any more meddling from Sarah Palin.”
