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, Truancy - Petition Against Child
Pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 260C.007 subd. 6(14), truancy is treated as a "child in need of protection or services" matter. And children in such proceedings only have a right to appointed counsel (but regardless of indigence) when out-of-home placement is sought, pursuant to Minn. Stat. § 260C.163 subd. 3(e).
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.
