Gordon "refused to respond to discovery, relying on a blanket asserting that to do so would violate his Fifth Amendment Privilege," the judge explained in the ruling. "The Defendant then moved to stay all discovery until any criminal proceedings were over. That motion was denied. Defendant asserted that privilege any way in refusing to respond to discovery, including failing to appear for his noticed deposition."
"The court finds that the defendant has failed and refused to comply with the order of this court," the ruling states, and as such, Gordon "is in contempt."
What's more, from now on "he is prohibited from introducing any facts contrary to the facts as set forth in the amended complaint" by Brown's estate, the judge wrote.
