By Marice Richter FORT WORTH, Texas (Reuters) - Lawyers for the Texas "affluenza" teenager who killed four people while driving drunk are seeking to have him released from a two-year jail term, arguing the judge who sentenced him had no authority to place him behind bars. The attorneys for Ethan Couch claimed in a motion filed late on Tuesday that Tarrant County Judge Wayne Salvant should not have sentenced Couch because the case became a civil matter, and not a criminal one, when it was transferred to the judge from the juvenile system. Couch was 16 and had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit of an adult when he struck and killed four people in June 2013.
