Bobbi Kristina Brown case won by default

New York residents who follow celebrity news may already be aware of the result of the wrongful death lawsuit filed against the partner of TV personality Bobbi Kristina Brown. According to reports released in mid-September, the judge in the case has ruled in favor of Brown's estate, stating that Brown's partner had repeatedly failed to meet deadlines set by the court. The man's last attorney reportedly removed himself from the case in November.

The lawsuit filed against Brown's partner initially alleged that he physically and financially abused the 22-year-old, taking money from her and at one point knocking out her teeth and dragging her up a set of stairs. The suit, filed by the conservator of Brown's estate, originally sought $10 million. However, after Brown's death, the case was upgraded to a wrongful death suit and sought $50 million in damages, alleging that the man gave his then girlfriend a harmful mixture of chemicals and placed her face-down in a filled tub, resulting in brain damage and, ultimately, her death.

Brown's father, singer Bobby Brown, was added as a plaintiff in the case in May 2015. He expressed that he was pleased with the ruling via a statement through his attorney.

If a victim has suffered injury, they may choose to seek the help of a personal injury lawyer. A lawyer may be able to help file a civil lawsuit, separate from a criminal case, against the responsible party for the damages. If the victim passes away due to their injuries, their family may be able to collect damages to cover medical costs, loss of companionship and loss of their loved one's income.
