Nick Gordon has been found civilly liable in the death of his girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown. The daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown died last year at the age of 22.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford ruled that Gordon was liable by default after he failed to appear in court for the second time in the wrongful death civil suit brought by Brown's estate, according to The Associated Press and paperwork obtained by ABC News.
“I am pleased with the outcome of today’s court proceedings," Bobbi Kristina's father, Bobby Brown, told ABC News in a statement. "All I ever wanted was answers relating to who and what caused my daughter’s death. Today’s judgment tells me it was Nick Gordon. Now I need to process all the emotions I have and lean on God to get me and my family through this.”
