    Lawyers for jailed former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle are claiming the parents of a girl who was secretly filmed in a child porn scheme are responsible for the emotional distress she suffered.

    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.

    A McDonough, Georgia, Walmart is facing a backlash after an employee refused to make a "Blue Lives Matter" cake for a retiring police officer, and the story is going viral. The officer's daughter says it was a cake for the officer's retirement party after serving for 25 years. After a friend posted about the incident on Facebook, a manager called her to apologize and make the cake. Walmart's corporate communications department also issued an apology.

    Fogle's lawyers filed the motion in response to a lawsuit against him that involves a girl who was one of several minors secretly filmed changing clothes or while bathing during stays at the home of the man who ran Fogle's charity between 2011 and 2015. 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.
