WRONG!!!!! No such thing happened in court today, only 20 mins spent in court and September court date set. Judge hasn't even received both parties financial earnings yet. Pay attention to truth TMZ, quit buying the BS the Palin's and their flea bag lawyer are selling!

FACTS of today's court found in below Alaska news links.

Levi would never sign off on that baby, to get out of his life. He wants to stay attached to Sarah Palin's coattails, whether he likes her or not. She is the only reason he has achieved any notoriety or money.

He is the baby's father, and should support the child financially.

Bristol a full-time caretaker of Levi's son? Last time I checked, she was busy doing TV show guest shots...just like mommy.

So why do the rich and famous Palins need any cash from Levi? If he has to fork over that much, he deserves full custody.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

As Democrats, Socialists, & special interests EXPLOIT the Historic nature of Obama's presidency (including Obama himself) for BONUS MONEY to their districts (and themselves) or Leftist (socialist) amendments , this becomes a legacy of 2009. The year of 2009 will be the year of PURE DNC GREED , as they call others greedy in the so called private sector. WILL EXPOLITING OBAMA (a scare tactic that Obama also uses) FOR Millions in funding or wreckless socialist ideals be the DNC Tactic of 2010 ?

TMZ your lyin'! You should know better than to trust the Van Flea for info!
"Attorney Thomas Van Flein previously asked that subpoenas be issued to obtain information on payments made to Johnston by Playgirl and media companies such as CNN, Entertainment Tonight, Vanity Fair, the National Enquirer, Star magazine and Insider.

Johnston has said he wasn't paid for many of the media interviews.

A judge hasn't ruled on the request.

The court is determining the amount of child support based on Johnston's adjusted gross income, which is estimated between $100,000 and $105,000. Johnston has said his income from the entertainment field can be erratic.

The judge on Thursday encouraged Butler to get his client's financial information to the court, saying it was past due. She granted issuing subpoenas to get that information.

Van Flein said he had "every confidence" that the child support issue would be resolved in the next two weeks."
And Hey Where is Bristol's income declaration??? From her LLC, Candies, People mag etc????

Man Oh Man that was one expensive piece of Azz. I hope it was worth it. I don't know, it was pretty cool that he pollinated the governor’s daughter’s flower, but not a bargain.
