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
At one time, Maine required minors to obtain parental consent prior to seeking an abortion. However, current Maine law only requires that the minor be provided certain information prior to obtaining the abortion. There is, though, still a statutory procedure in place for a minor to seek judicial approval for the abortion, and that procedure contains a right to counsel for the minor. See Me. Rev. Stat. Ann. tit. 22, § 1597-A(6)(C) (2012) ("If any party is unable to afford counsel, the court shall appoint counsel at least 24 hours before the time of the hearing")
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.
