BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The daughter of Alabama football coach Nick Saban says evidence proves she isn't to blame for a fight with a sorority sister who's now suing over the brawl.

Lawyers for Kristen Saban have filed legal documents in Tuscaloosa asking a judge to rule in her favor in the lawsuit, filed last year by Sarah Grimes.

Kristen Saban says sworn statements and other evidence show Grimes was the aggressor during the 2010 fight, which followed a night of drinking.

Saban says she was only defending herself. But Grimes claims the coach's daughter left her with injuries that led to more than $16,000 in medical bills.

Coach Saban isn't involved in the suit, but evidence shows wife Terry Saban had communications with the Grimes family following the fight.
