Texas judge orders 'affluenza' records turned over

A judge has ordered attorneys for the North Texas teenager who killed four people in a deadly wreck to turn over the records of the psychologist who claimed the teen suffered from “affluenza.”

Judge R.H. Wallace Jr.’s Thursday ruling rejected arguments by Ethan Couch’s attorneys.

Dr. Dick Miller testified last year that Couch was coddled into a sense of irresponsibility by his wealthy parents — a condition Miller called “affluenza.” Couch was 16 years old when he drunkenly rammed a pickup truck into a crowd of people, killing four. He was given probation.

The family of a boy injured in the wreck is suing Couch’s family and wants Miller’s records as part of their case.

[font color=green]Due to the harm that he caused to four members of the public on a public highway it is somewhat ridiculous for his attorney to declare an expectation of privacy for his medical records when he is involved in a tort lawsuit.[/font]

2. I think this is the kid I mentioned on a previous thread that you had posted about Crouch.

If so, I really admire him and his family. They refused to settle. I hope they get their day in court. They deserve justice.
