*An Atlanta judge has granted a news media request to unseal the autopsy report for Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Henry Newkirk on Thursday granted a motion filed by media organizations, according to local news reports. According to WXIA-TV Newkirk will likely sign an unsealing order in the coming days.

Media lawyers argued the September sealing order violated the state and federal constitutions and court rules because it was entered without public notice and without an opportunity for a hearing. The state argued the law exempts records sealed by court order.

The state is appealing the decision.

The 22-year-old daughter of singer Whitney Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban Atlanta townhome Jan. 31, 2015, and died in hospice care July 26.
