Judge refuses to reverse dismissal of Saban suit

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – A judge is refusing to reverse his decision dismissing a lawsuit against a daughter of University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban.

Tuscaloosa County Circuit Judge James Roberts issued a brief order Tuesday declining to reinstate a lawsuit filed against Kristen Saban by former friend Sarah Grimes.

Grimes sued the coach’s daughter over a fight the two had after a night of drinking in 2010. The two were members of the same sorority at the time but have since graduated from Alabama.

Roberts dismissed the lawsuit earlier this month, ruling Kristen Saban was only defending herself during a scuffle with Grimes that evidence showed was over a Facebook post.

Grimes asked the judge to reinstate her lawsuit so it could move forward, but the judge refused.
