Nick Gordon was named in a civil suit last week when a conservator for Bobbi Kristina Brown filed a lawsuit against him. The suit alleges he abused Bobbi Kristina in the days leading up to January 31st, when she was found unconscious in her bathtub. The suit claims Nick Gordon physically assaulted her and took money from her bank accounts without her permission.

Now ET is reporting that Nick Gordon is assembling a high power legal team, in anticipation of the possibility of more charges coming when Bobbi Kristina Brown dies. Jose Baez is included on his legal team. He is the lawyer who represented Casey Anthony, who was acquitted in the murder of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.

In addition to Jose Baez, Nick Gordon's legal team thus far includes Joe Habachy, who will serve as lead attorney. TJ Ward, one of the investigators who worked on the disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway when she went missing in Aruba in 2005, is expected to sign on to the team as well.

No criminal charges have yet been filed against Nick Gordon, but it's expected that could happen.

"[The District's Attorney] will have to make a decision whether this was a homicide, a domestic violence or non-criminal," former LA prosecutor Michael Kraut explained in a conversation with ET. "Nick clearly doesn't have $10 million. The lawsuit was filed to get information in order to provide the police and district attorney about what happened on that day."

Do you expect Nick Gordon might be charged with murder when Bobbi Kristina Brown passes away? Her family is sitting vigil by her bedside at a Georgia hospice awaiting that fateful moment.

Meanwhile Nick Gordon was recently spotted out shopping in Florida.

Do you think there is enough evidence against Nick Brown to prove that he harmed Bobbi Kristina enough to cause her death?
