    A judge in Atlanta has ruled against Bobbi Kristina Brown's partner, Nick Gordon, in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by her estate.

    Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford signed an order Friday saying Gordon repeatedly failed to meet court deadlines in the case. The order says that means the conservator of her estate wins by default.

    Brown, the daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome in January 2015. She died about six months later in hospice care.

    The judge's order says a jury trial will be set to determine how much Gordon will be required to pay in damages.
