Nick Gordon ruled legally responsible for the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown

According to E! last summer the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown filed a lawsuit against her sort of brother sort of "husband" Nick Gordon. The lawsuit claimed that Bobbi Kristina and Gordon had a violent altercation and that he drugged her up and put her unconscious body in a tub which ultimately led to her death. Gordon allegedly also transferred several thousand dollars of Bobbi Kristina's money into his account while she was in a coma.

Since Gordon has refused to appear in court on multiple occasions for this multi million dollar lawsuit it is being seen as an admission of guilt and that all statements made by Bobbi Kristina's estate are now "admitted by omission". The judge was also enraged by the fact that Gordon would not come to court to address the allegations but he was able to make an appearance on Dr. Phil this year to talk about the claims.

According to Rolling Stone the civil suit is now moving past hearings into a a trial by jury do determine how much Bobbi Kristina's estate will be awarded.

"It's not a criminal case but it doesn't have to be," the Brown estate lawyer said in a statement. "We want to legally establish he was responsible for her injuries the proceeded her death and we’ve done that today."
