A judge has ordered the attorneys of Ethan Couch, the intoxicated teen that killed four and injured several others in a car crash last summer, to hand over Couch’s psychological records, according to the Dallas Morning News. The order is related to the suit against Couch’s family by one of the boys injured in the accident and his family. The psychologist that testified in Couch’s case, Dr. Dick Miller, claimed that Couch was suffering from what Dr. Miller called “affluenza” – a condition that prevented Couch from being aware of the consequences of his actions due to his affluent lifestyle. Couch was given probation for his crimes and the case received national attention. Couch’s family has settled several lawsuits in regards to the deadly wreck, and it is likely that the family’s lawyers will appeal this decision.
