TUSCALOOSA, AL (WAFF) - The daughter of University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban denies allegations that she caused serious injuries to a former sorority sister.

Lawyers for Kristen Saban on Tuesday filed her response to a lawsuit filed last month by Sarah Grimes.

Grimes maintains in her lawsuit that the coach's daughter attacked her during a night of drinking after the two got into a dispute over a Facebook posting.

Saban's attorneys say in court papers that Grimes lunged at her and tried to choke her. Saban's lawyers say a witness in the room reported that the coach's daughter was only defending herself as both women were throwing punches, with not many landing in August 2010.

Kristen Saban has asked a court to throw out the lawsuit.
