INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is being sued by a girl who’s one of the victims in the sex crimes case that led to him being sentenced to more than 15 years in prison.

The federal lawsuit filed Tuesday names Fogle and the former head of his anti-obesity charity, Russell Taylor. It also names Taylor’s wife.

The suit seeks at least $150,000 from each Fogle and Taylor.

Prosecutors who charged the Indiana men last year said Taylor used hidden cameras in his homes to secretly film 12 nude minors and shared some images with Fogle.

The attorney for the girl suing, M. Michael Stephenson, says she was among those filmed and has suffered “significant emotional trauma.”

Fogle paid a total of $1.4 million in restitution to 14 victims. They can sue for more.
