    Fogle, 39, was sentenced in November to 15-and-a-half years in prison for receiving child pornography and traveling to engage in sexual conduct with a minor.

Images and videos of the kids were sent to Fogle, prosecutors say.

    The lawsuit against Fogle accuses the former charity foundation executive of causing the girl personal injuries and emotional distress.

    But the motion filed by Fogle's attorneys Thursday argues the girl's divorced parents "maintained a hateful and abusive relationship toward each other" — and that, as well as fights and abuse, caused the girl emotional and psychological damage before the secret recordings were discovered.
