Nick Gordon’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the $10 million wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by Bobbi Kristina’s estate in June, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The suit was changed after Bobbi Kristina Brown died on July 26.
Gordon claims there are multiple reasons it should be dismissed. Namely, authorities have not charged him with any wrongdoing in the death of his girlfriend, the late daughter of pop legend Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown. They have only labeled him a “person of interest.”
Bryant Green III and Jonathan M. Broderick, civil lawyers for Gordon, filed papers at Superior Court of Fulton County in Georgia Tuesday against Bedelia C. Hargrove, the conservator for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s estate, Radar Online wrote. Each of the claims listed in the suit were denied by Gordon’s legal team, AJC noted.
Part of the motion reads: “Plaintiff’s Complaint as answered by Defendant contains several unsupported conclusory, untrue criminal accusations that Defendant Nicholas Gordon committed acts that he simply did not do. Plaintiff has not provided any evidence including but not limited to, affidavits, police reports, indictments, and or any documentation to support baseless claims made against Defendant.”
It’s not the first time Gordon’s lawyers have slammed the suit. Jose Baez, the defense lawyer who represented former mother Casey Anthony, in August called the wrongful death suit “slanderous and meritless. ... Nick has been heartbroken and destroyed over the loss of his love, and it’s shameful that such baseless allegations have been presented publicly," he said. "Nick has engaged civil counsel and intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously and expose it for what it is: a fictitious assault against the person who loved Krissy most.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown was found facedown and unconscious in a bathtub in her Roswell, Georgia, home. After months of hospitalization, she was moved to Christian Peachtree Hospice where she died on July 26. Bobbi Kristina Brown was buried next to her mother in New Jersey. Gordon was not welcome at the memorial service.
