Affluenza teen attorney files "AMPARO". U.S Marshals cancel mission


U.S  Marshal services says “mission canceled".  

Lawyers for Ethan Couch won a delay in his deportation based on a constitutional appeal in Mexico that could lead to a weeks-long legal process.


Known as an "amparo," or protection, such appeals try to block a government action. In this case, Couch's attorneys are asking a judge to prevent authorities from deporting him or holding him without contact with lawyers, family members or visitors.
