Jared Fogle, the former Subway pitchman who is serving time for child pornography, is suing one of his victim’s parents.

The court filing appears to be something of a counter-suit against anonymous victim Jane Doe, who is seeking monetary damages from Fogle and his business partner for “significant emotional trauma” caused by secret filming of her in the nude while in the home of the partner.

Fogle, who is serving his time at a federal prison in Colorado, claims in court documents that the girl’s parents are actually responsible for her personal injury and emotional trauma because they neglected her and frequently fought in front of her, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.

The Mail reported that the girls’ parents have not yet responded nor has a judge yet agreed to allow the case to move forward.

Fogle, a millionaire who made his fortune, and celebrity status, as a spokesman for the sandwich chain, initially paid the girl $100,000 as part of his plea deal on the child pornography and sex abuse charges, the Mail reported.

Fogle was sentenced in November to 15 years in federal prison, and must serve a minimum of 13 years. Russell Taylor, the business partner who supplied him videotapes of the underage girls, including Jane Doe, is serving a 27-year sentence for producing child pornography.
