'It's More Of Principle Than Money' Says Lawyer For Bobbi Kristina Brown's Estate Executor

By K. Aviles - 20 Nov '16 01:00AM

It is more of a principle than the money that the estate of Bobbi Kristina Brown through its co-counsel, Glenda Hatchett, will be pursuing to collect the judgment award against Nick Gordon. Recently, the judge hearing into the allegations of wrongful death against Gordon issued an award, ordering Gordon to pay the estate of Brown $36 million.

Hatchett, one of the counsels for Bedelia Hargrove, the executor of the Bobbi Kristina Brown's estate said as quoted by People that while they are aware that Gordon does not have the money he must suppose to pay Kristina Brown's estate, the same must be collected from it as they do not want Gordon to benefit from it. The award issued by the court is to ensure that people know about Gordon's "despicable behavior" and how Gordon battered and assaulted Kristina many times.

Bobby Brown, Kristina's father, was pleased with the court's decision, finding Nick Gordon liable for his daughter's wrongful death. Craig Terett, Bobby Brown's counsel was quoted, saying, "Bobby is relieved to have this chapter of the process behind him, but now he intends to actively pursue the collection against Nick Gordon.

Terett also told the media that to collect the amount, they will collaborate with an attorney specializing in collection in Florida. They plan to attach assets belonging to Gordon in Florida. And if that is not enough, the lawyers will garnish Gordon's wages, which may be earned through whatever legal means.

Also included in the judgment was for Nick to return to the estate Kristina's engagement ring, which according to reports, is valued at $1.5 million and belongs to the Whitney Houston, Kristina's mother.

For those who are not aware, Kristina Bobbi Brown was found unconscious inside her bathroom, face down in her bathtub on January 31, 2015, much like how her mother was found on February 11, 2012. Kristina died after being in a coma for seven months.
