Civil Suit

Nick Gordon to pay $36 Million to the Estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown

in Death by

Nick Gordon was found liable in the amount of $36,256,918 in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against him by Bobbi Kristina’s estate this past September.  That ruling came after he failed to appear for a mandatory court appearance in Atlanta, despite the fact that he had no legal counsel and chose to represent himself in the civil case. Like they always say, a man who represents himself has a fool for a client.

A day after the verdict was read, lawyers for the Brown family are made it clear that they intend to do everything in their power to get the full judgment out of Gordon. Craig Terrett, the attorney for Bobby Brown, tells that, “We intend to enforce the judgment against Gordon. Our first step will be to retain a collections attorney to pursue all available avenues.” He added that, “We understand that collecting the full judgment will be difficult but we want to make sure he never profits from her death. When he finally climbs out from under the rock that he is hiding under, we will be there to greet him.”

Nick Gordon has not been seen nor has be bothered to show up to any of the hearings regarding the civil case. He actually hasn’t been seen out in public since September. Getting the money is going to hard because Gordon is currently employed and pretty much has been since he and Bobbi Kristina were together. Following the death of Bobbi Kristina, he did manage to make some money doing the talk show circuit.

The attorney, Terrett, also told The Daily Mail that now that the wrongful death lawsuit has been settled, he and the family are hoping that criminal charges will be filed. He said, “We are also hopeful that District Attorney, Paul Howard, will see this as an opportunity to complete his investigation and bring criminal charges against Nick Gordon.”

This story is just tragedy all around. Nick Gordon has been acting super shady about the death of Bobbi Kristina. It has been suggested that he did want not want to show up to the civil trial because he would have to testify under oath and he did not want to give the state any addition evidence against him in the death of Bobbi Kristina. We highly doubt that the Brown estate will ever see a dime of that money.

Taylor Swift’s Deposition in Denver DJ Groping Civil Suit

in People by

Taylor Swift DJ groping civil suitTaylor Swift’s deposition in the Denver DJ groping incident in 2013 got pretty graphic. It was previously reported that DJ, David Mueller, had groped Swift very aggressively during a meet and greet. Mueller has filed a civil slander suit against Swift that states her groping claims are false and that he was unnecessarily fired after the incident.

Swift previously requested to the judge presiding over the case that a photo that was taken during the meet and greet and hundreds of court documents be sealed. The photo which has been presented as evidence that the DJ, David “Jackson” Mueller, groped her at a 2013 concert allegedly shows the groping taking place. According to Refinery 29, The motion argues that Swift’s right to privacy outweighs the public’s need for disclosure. She also filed a motion to have the suit dismissed. The motion states, “In addition to the likelihood of these documents swaying a jury, it is all but assured that the photograph will be shared for scandalous and prurient interests — reasons that have nothing to do with the public’s interest in the Court’s decision-making,” The judge ruled in Swift’s favor.

TMZ reports that Mueller’s attorneys grilled Swift about the incident during the deposition and she said, “As soon as he grabbed my ass, I became shocked and withdrawn and was barely able to say, ‘Thanks for coming,’ which is what I say to everybody.” Taylor also says she was posing for a photo with Mueller and his female companion, and says she was so shocked at what happened, “It was like somebody switched the lights off in my personality.” The groping incident also happened underneath her clothes.

Because the judge ruled to seal the photo of the incident, Mueller’s attorney grilled her on what exactly the photo shows. She answered that, “It’s impossible to know if that was in the moment before or as he’s grabbed on, but I was there, so I felt it, so I didn’t just see it in a photo afterward.”
