LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former California congresswoman Katie Hill, who was ordered to pay legal fees for a British tabloid and two conservative journalists she sued after intimate photos were published without her consent, filed for bankruptcy.

If successful, the move could allow Hill to avoid paying approximately $220,000 in costs to the defendants, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
