PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Former Oregon First Lady Cylvia Hayes has sought protection from her creditors in bankruptcy court.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Hayes filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection Tuesday after a protracted battle over public records with The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Hayes was caught up in an influence-peddling scandal that forced fiance John Kitzhaber from the governor's office in 2015.

A judge ruled that Hayes should pay about $125,000 for the newspaper's attorney's fees.

The initial filing says Hayes owes between $100,001 and $500,000 to 49 creditors.

She listed the value of her total assets at between $100,001 and $500,000.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows a debtor to reorganize their financial situation by extinguishing some debt and establishing a repayment plan for the balance. Chapter 13 also allows the debtor to keep their real estate.
