Lawsuit tossed against daughter
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed against Alabama football coach Nick Saban's daughter by her sorority sister after a fight.
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.
A lawyer for Kristen Saban says the family refused to pay ''hush money'' to avoid bad publicity over the fight.
