JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A custody case over one of Sarah Palin's grandchildren has been closed.

State court records show the case between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston involving their son, Tripp, was closed earlier this month after a lack of activity.

Johnston attorney Rex Butler says the best way to interpret this is that the parties are likely to work out their differences on their own.

In 2010, Bristol Palin and Johnston agreed Bristol would have primary physical custody and the two would share legal custody, subject to Bristol's resolution if they couldn't agree.

Bristol Palin and Tripp appeared on the recent Lifetime series "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," in which Johnston's presence in his son's life, or lack thereof, was part of the story line. The website TMZ last month reported Johnston wanted full custody.

An attorney for Bristol Palin didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
