An Atlanta judge ruled that Nick Gordan, the former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, is guilty by default in a wrongful death lawsuit of Bobbi Kristina filed by her estate.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford signed an order saying Gordon repeatedly failed to meet court deadlines in the case and, therefore, the conservator of her estate wins by default. The judge's order says a jury trial will be set to determine how much Gordon will be required to pay in damages.
A medical examiner's report said an autopsy showed that Bobbi Kristina Brown had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body. The report said the examiner classified the manner of death as "undetermined."
No criminal charges have been filed against Gordon.
