As a journalist, I'm supposed to be in favor of maximum access to court documents. As a human being - and in particular as a mother - I have a hard time seeing why the custody fight between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston ought to be on the public record for all to see. An Alaska judge has denied Palin's request to keep the dispute under seal. How can this possibly be in the best interests of the child - their son, Tripp?
