Tuscaloosa County Circuit Judge James H. Roberts Jr. ruled Thursday that Kristen Saban was justified in using force to defend herself during a 2010 scuffle with Sarah Grimes.

Grimes claimed Kristen Saban injured her during a brawl that followed a night of drinking.

The judge says evidence shows Grimes initiated the confrontation. And he says Kristen Saban was allowed to defend herself under Alabama's ''stand your ground'' law.
Grimes sued in state court in 2012, seeking an unspecified amount of money for injuries.

A lawyer for Kristen Saban says the family refused to pay ''hush money'' to avoid bad publicity over the fight.
