Gordon's lawyer's filed a motion to attempt and stop the $40 million lawsuit against him.
Nick Gordon is trying to halt the lawsuit claiming he caused Bobbi Kristina Brown's death.
On Monday, Gordon's attorney filed a motion obtained by PEOPLE asking the court to stop the suit until the criminal investigation and any potential proceedings are complete.
The 24-year-old's papers say public interest in his girlfriend's death and her parents, the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, has resulted in negative media attention that would make him "unfairly, legally and financially prejudiced should he be subject to parallel criminal and civil proceedings."
According to Gordon's papers, the wrongful death suit brought against him by Brown's court-appointed conservator alleges that he "is a murderer, a habitual batterer of women, a seducer of young white females, a thief and/or con-man fueled by monetary gain, and a chemist capable of making a toxic cocktail."
