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, Civil Commitment - Subject of Petition
Arizona law provides that a "person detained under emergency detention" "shall be advised that if he cannot employ an attorney, the court will appoint one for him. The person shall be advised that if a petition for evaluation is filed, the court will appoint the person an attorney to consult with and, if he cannot employ his own counsel, to represent him." Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. §36-528(D). Moreover, the court "shall promptly appoint counsel for the proposed patient" when a patient is taken into custody for evaluation. Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 36-529(B). "If the person is involuntarily hospitalized, the person shall be informed by his appointed attorney of his rights to a hearing to determine whether he should be involuntarily hospitalized for evaluation and to be represented at the hearing by an attorney." Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 36-529(D). See also Ariz. Rev. Stat. §§ 36-535 (court shall appoint counsel for proposed patient if one has not previously been appointed in connection with detention hearing), 36-537 ("If the attorney is appointed, he shall also explain that the patient can obtain his own counsel at his own expense and that, if it is later determined that the person is not indigent, the person will be responsible for the fees of the appointed attorney for services rendered after the initial attorney-client conference.")
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.
