Saban's daughter denies fight suit

The daughter of University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban is denying claims in a lawsuit that she seriously injured a sorority sister during a fight.

Kristen Saban filed her response Tuesday to a suit by Sarah Grimes, who claims the two got into a fight over a Facebook post after a night of drinking in August 2010.

Kristen Saban's attorney last week filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, blaming the altercation on Grimes and claiming the coach's daughter acted in self-defense.

In the latest filing, Saban's lawyer says the injuries Grimes claimed to have suffered were essentially the same as ones she listed in a previous lawsuit over a Florida car wreck.


Grimes claimed serious injuries from the fight including a concussion. Saban denies she caused those injuries.
