BALTIMORE (AP) - A Maryland mother is suing more than 200 people who she says had child pornography depicting her two young daughters.

The woman filed a lawsuit Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Baltimore. It says that in 2008 the girls, then 4 and 6, were forced to engage in sexual acts with their father. The lawsuit says the girls' father and another man produced images and video to gain entry into a group of individuals who trade child pornography.

The children's father and a co-defendant have pleaded guilty to federal charges relating to the production of pornography and are serving decades in prison.

The girls' mother, who goes by Jane Doe in the complaint, is seeking millions of dollars. The lawsuit names 84 individuals and 182 others as "John Doe."
