Mel Gibson will have to wait a little longer before ending his bitter custody battle with ex-girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA - a judge won't make a ruling until December (10) at the earliest.
The former couple has been fighting over 12-month-old Lucia since they split earlier this year (10), with Grigorieva accusing the actor of attacking her during a heated argument in January (10).
Gibson's legal advisors have been arguing that her public comments suggest she's only interested in damaging his reputation, and they've requested the Braveheart star be given full custody of Lucia, with Grigorieva only allowed monitored visits during the day.
The case returned to court on Monday (22Nov10) but no decision was reached, reports TMZ.com.
Judge Scott Gordon will pick up the case again next month (Dec10).
