After failing to appear in court, Nick Gordon was found “legally responsible” in the late Bobbi Kristina Brown’s wrongful death suit.
According to UsWeekly:
“Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford ruled today that Nick Gordon is legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s death after the defendant failed to appear in court,” the statement reads. “A jury will determine the amount of damages to be awarded to Brown’s conservator.”
An attorney for Bobbi Kristina’s estate told Atlanta NBC affiliate 11Alive that the family is satisfied with Friday’s court ruling. “In court today, we finally finished a long journey for justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown,” the lawyer told the outlet. “The court agrees with us, by striking Mr. Gordon’s answer, that he is legally responsible for her death. The only thing left to prove is the value of her life. We intend to do that.”
