Aide: Brazilian family giving up fight for US boy

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - December 23, 2009

The aide to lawyer Sergio Tostes says "it is certain the family will not pursue any more legal channels."

She spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because she said she wasn't authorized to discuss the matter.

Tostes referred inquiries to the aide.

Also Wednesday, a federal court ordered the family to hand over the boy by Thursday morning.

The boy has been living in Brazil since 2004.
