Kelsey Grammer: Let's Go to Trial, Camille!

6/2/2011 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kelsey Grammer has just filed legal docs that make it clear ... he's given up hope that he can settle his custody battle with Camille Grammer and he wants a judge to settle it once and for all.


In the documents, obtained by TMZ, Kelsey's lawyer, Lance Spiegel, notes that a child custody expert is evaluating Kelsey, Camille and their 2 kids, to determine how custody should be parceled out. 

Once the evaluation is in, Kelsey wants a trial ... so it looks like he doesn't hold out hope he can strike a deal with his ex.

According to the docs, a temporary arrangement is in place until July 2 -- one month from today -- so the clock is ticking.
