IRONDALE, Ala. -- Crown Automobiles of Hoover is suing Mercedes-Benz USA, saying recent news that a new, Nick Saban-funded dealership in the Birmingham area has derailed plans to sell its lot in Hoover. 

Saban confirmed in a released statement through his attorneys Tuesday that he and his partner, Joe Agresti, have indeed entered into a written agreement to open a dealership in Irondale.

"My partner and I have entered into a letter agreement with Mercedes Benz to open a new dealership in Irondale," Saban said. "We are honored to join the Mercedes family and are extremely excited about the benefits this dealership will bring to the citizens of Birmingham, Irondale and surrounding areas."

The statement comes one day after attorneys for Crown Automobiles filed a notice of intent to subpoena Saban to determine if he's doing business with Mercedes-Benz USA.

Construction of the facility is currently being held up by a civil lawsuit.
