Judge Tosses Lawsuit against Saban's Daughter

So, Nick Saban's daughter was not a girl gone wild when she got into an altercation four years ago with her sorority sister.

Saban's daughter, Kristen, was found by a Tuscaloosa judge to be justified in defending herself against her former sorority sister, Sarah Grimes; therefore, the lawsuit was thrown out.

The judge said that evidence showed Grimes initiated the confrontation. And he says Kristen Saban was allowed to defend herself under Alabama's 'Stand Your Ground' law. Fortunately for Grimes, as this didn't happen in Florida and she's not black, she wasn't shot.

Grimes was apparently trying to blackmail Ms Saban into passing over her hush money to keep the incident out of court. However, it's now official that this case should never have gone to court in the first place.

As for the coach, he's embroiled in a lawsuit regarding a Mercedes dealership he was supposed to open in Birmingham.

Owners of the other Mercedes dealership in Birmingham, Crown Motors, filed a suit because it doesn't want to compete against a Nick Saban-owned Mercedes dealership. That's just anti-American. And it's not as if Crown doesn't have other things to sell.

This is quite ironic, considering the fact that some college football coaches are accusing Saban of not wanting to compete against the spread offense and that he's orchestrating a 10-second-between-snaps rule being considered by the NCAA. What with all the furor against the proposed rule after it was announced, the NCAA Football Rules Committee chairman seems to be backing down.

I guess Saban doesn't run the world after all.
