Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Boyfriend Nick Gordon Files Restraining Order to Squash Search Warrant

The motion aims to prevent Roswell Police from obtaining home security camera footage

Attorneys for Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, filed a temporary restraining order in Fulton County Superior Court on Monday against the Roswell Police Department, which has been investigating him since the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub in the home she shared with Gordon.

Documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution show that Gordon hopes to prevent authorities from carrying out a search warrant for footage captured on a Nest Labs web-based security camera, called a “dropcam.” The filing also targets the company, which notified Gordon that it intended to comply with the warrant issued on Feb. 12.

“The Search Warrant violates the Fourth Amendment in that it is overly broad and seeks private data ‘without limitation,’ and fails to narrowly limit the scope of the data sought by date or other characteristics,” court documents read.

According to Gordon’s attorneys, the warrant aimed at gathering evidence of “possession of a controlled substance” is an unjust breach of privacy, and there is “an insufficient link between the crime alleged.”

“Privacy, in the context of stored information includes the right to control how stored information is communicated and prevent its abuse,” the documents continue. “It is more than just confidentiality of data. The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution implicitly governs in its very core that Americans have a reasonable expectation of privacy which inherently extends to the right to control their own data and access thereto.”

Gordon’s attorney Randall M. Kessler did not return TheWrap‘s request for comment. A spokeswoman for the Roswell PD said the department was not commenting on the matter.

Reports have surfaced that Bobbi Kristina was using heroin and other drugs prior to being found face-down in her bathtub on Jan. 31. Gordon was one of two men who discovered her before she was rushed to the hospital, where she remains on life support.
