Nick Gordon Ruled 'Legally Responsible' for Bobbi Kristina Brown's Death

Nick Gordon has been deemed “legally responsible” for the death of his late girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown after he failed to show up in court for a wrongful death civil lawsuit.

Bobbi‘s conservator filed the lawsuit against Nick and he didn’t show up to court twice, so anything alleged by the plaintiff is legally considered to be admitted by the defendant through omission.

Nick is being sued for $50 million in damages and a jury will determine how much Bobbi‘s estate will be awarded. He will not be facing criminal charges though.

“In court today, we finally finished a long journey for justice for Bobbi Kristina Brown,” a lawyer for the Brown family said after court (via a local NBC affiliate). “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.”
