Baby dada LEVI JOHNSTON slammed by judge in BRISTOL PALIN custody battle over their son TRIPP.
Alaska judge Gregory L. Heath, who was appointed to the bench by Governor Sarah Palin in 2009, last week dismissed Levi Johnston’s petition for equal custody of the four-year-old.
Johnston, 23, filed a petition for custody last October saying Tripp should be in his mother’s and father’s lives equally.
The dyspeptic couple had otherwise agreed when they split in 2010 that Bristol, 23, would have primary physical custody.
In the wake of Levi’s sudden court filing, Bristol said he was $67,000 behind in child support  and was not a fit dad because he didn’t even visit Tripp on a regular basis, RadarOnline reported. Ex- GOP VP candidate Sarah even went so far as to call Levi a “deadbeat dad.”
And when it came to his bid for custody, Levi was just as disorganized. He never filed an opposition to Bristol’s motion to dismiss but then asked the Palmer Superior Court judge for an extension, but only until after he blew the deadline.
Finally, the judge said he would hear their argument for a extension… but eventually denied their motion. Case closed.
