On Friday, the judge ruled that Nick Gordon is legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death after he failed to appear in front of the court at the scheduled date. In August 2015, Brown’s estate filed a lawsuit for wrongful death against Nick Gordon, after Whitney Houston’s daughter died after she had an argument with Gordon.
As it seems, he placed her in a bathtub while she was unconscious and injected a toxic mixture into her body. The suit was worth $10 million and it claimed that Gordon also abused Bobbi Kristina while they were together. Moreover, while she was being hospitalized, he transferred $11,000 from her account to his, without having any kind of authorization. This year in May, Bobby Brown also joined the legal battle as a plaintiff.
The case was assigned to judge T. Jackson Bedford, from the Atlanta Fulton County Superior Court and he said that because Gordon made no appearance on two occasion when the court scheduled it, anything he alleges is now admitted through omission.
Brown’s legal counsel declared that they believed all along that Nick Gordon was guilty for Bobbi Kristina’s death and this ruling only confirms their belief. Truth be told, indeed Gordon had all the chances to appear in front of the court and to defend himself, but he declined on every occasion.
Bobby also declared that he is pleased with the decision of the court. He further said that all he ever wanted was to get some answers regarding her daughter’s death and he finally got his answer in the person of Nick Gordon. Apparently all he has to do now is to give himself some time to process the news and to gather up strength to go through this. The result seems to be surprising, given the fact that all along, Gordon’s lawyers claimed that in fact he tried to save her life.
