Right to counsel
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).
Legislation, Bypass of Parental Input into Abortion - Minor
R.C. § 2151.85(B)(2) states that in judicial proceedings for minors seeking a waiver of the parental consent requirement for abortion, "[i]f the complainant has not retained an attorney, the court shall appoint an attorney to represent her." The same statute also requires appointment of a GAL for the minor, and adds that "[i]f the guardian ad litem is an attorney admitted to the practice of law in this state, the court also may appoint him to serve as the complainant's attorney."
Notably, R.C. § 2151.85 was held wholly unconstitutional by a trial-level court for reasons related to the notice provisions. In re Doe, 57 Ohio Misc. 2d 20 (C.P. 1990).
If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.
