Let the sun shine in

Levi Johnston, in a custody fight with Bristol Palin, wins a court round over whether the proceedings should be secret. Levi wants an open court. He thinks it would curb vindictiveness by baby grandmother, Sarah Palin.

Sounds like judge did right. Many judges have a tendency to routinely grant motions to close proceedings, even when no grounds exist, just because they've been asked. The more prominent the person making the request, the better the luck on that, it sometimes seems. Some Arkansas business titans' divorce cases come to mind.
