Alabama judge dismisses fraud suit against Lane Kiffin

COLUMBIANA, Ala. (AP) A judge has dismissed a fraud suit filed against Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin.

Shelby County Circuit Judge Lara Alvis dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning it can't be refiled. The decision was entered on Oct. 10, according to online court documents.

Former Alabama receiver Antonio "A.C." Carter had said Kiffin and Florida Atlantic offered him a job to get him to help sign a prospect and then failed to follow through on repeated assurances that the job was his.

The suit said Kiffin and other coaches knew that Carter and his family had a personal relationship with the prospect. It says Carter later was told that two "minor misdemeanor" charges disqualified him.

Kiffin had spent the past three seasons as Alabama's' offensive coordinator.
