Court reinstates suit against Saban's daughter
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Alabama Supreme Court is reinstating a lawsuit filed against the daughter of University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban.
The justices ruled Friday that a judge in Tuscaloosa was wrong to dismiss the lawsuit against Kristen Saban.
The Supreme Court says Sarah Grimes should get to pursue her lawsuit claiming Kristen Saban injured her during a fight after a night of drinking in August 2010.
Evidence showed the two were sorority sisters but got into a brawl over a Facebook post. Grimes claims the coach's daughter beat her badly.
Tuscaloosa County Circuit Judge James Roberts dismissed the suit in March, ruling Kristen Saban was only defending herself.
But the Supreme Court says there's enough of a dispute about what happened for the case to move forward.
