Five days after we learned that Nick Saban’s daughter, Kristen, was being sued in connection with a 2010 fight with one of her sorority sisters, her legal team has issued a response.
In a very detailed Defendant’s Answer to Complaint filed in the Circuit Court of Tuscaloosa County, Alabama — the entirety of which is shown on Outkick the Coverage — Kristen Saban’s lawyers claim that their client acted in self-defense.
The first defense of Saban’s Answer to Complaint claims that Saban’s sorority sister/the plaintiff, Sarah Grimes, “brought on this altercation by uttering hateful words to the defendant” and “attempted to choke the defendant.”
They allege that Grimes screamed “I am going to kill you, you crazy b—-” at Saban through Saban’s closed bedroom door after Karen posted “No one likes Sarah! Yayyyy” to her personal Facebook page.
Saban’s lawyers then allege that she let Grimes into her room and that as the argument escalated, Grimes put her hands on Saban’s throat—starting the physical confrontation that led to Grimes’ injuries.
An eyewitness in the room — listed with no name in the Answer to Complaint—says that Kristen Saban was “only defending herself as both of them were throwing punches” and that it was “pretty much an even fight.”
Thirty-three defenses were listed in all. Alas, none of them were nearly as captivating as these two.
