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
Vt. Stat. Tit. 33, § 5102(3)(D) defines habitual truancy as a "child in need of care or supervision" matters", and Vt. Stat. Ann. Tit. 33, § 5112(a) provides that "The court shall appoint an attorney for a child who is a party to a proceeding brought under the juvenile judicial proceedings chapters."
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.
