A lawyer explains:

Basically, Bristol wants custody, filed with a pseudonym and moved to have the case closed to the public or filed under seal (don’t know the exact rule in Alaska), the Court denied several motions, and forced the parties to litigate under their real names.

Bristol’s lawyers apparently thought Levi had broken some rules, so they filed a motion for an order to show cause (give reasons to the Court) why Levi should not be punished for something (which is unclear just from the list of the documents that have been filed.)

Other than that, doesn’t look like THAT out of the ordinary.
