A source tells ET that the Georgia District Attorney will be convening a grand jury and is looking to possibly indict Gordon on criminal charges.
"The district attorney is asking for some witnesses to be re-interviewed and will take it before the grand jury at a later date," the source tells ET. "The DA will not specify who those witnesses are."
As first reported by RadarOnline
, it's possible the District Attorney will call on several of Brown and Gordon's friends – including those who were in the home when Brown's body was discovered -- to testify in front of the grand jury.
On Monday, Gordon's lawyers filed a halt to the wrongful death suit while the criminal proceedings go on. In the filing obtained by ET, his attorneys claim that Gordon will not be able to get a fair trial with two concurrent suits in two different courts.
"The team is confident that the civil lawsuit will be dismissed," a source close to Gordon’s legal team tells ET after Monday’s filing.
Brown was found face down in a bathtub in her Georgia home on Jan. 31. She was discovered, unresponsive, by Gordon and one of Gordon's friends, who called emergency services. After spending nearly six months in a coma, Brown died in hospice care on July 26 at age 22.
On Sept. 25, the Fulton County Medical Examiner announced that the cause of Brown's death had been determined, but the results were sealed
by a court order obtained by the District Attorney.
No criminal charges have been filed against Gordon and his lawyers have called the wrongful death civil suit "slanderous and meritless."
