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).
Litigation, Sexually Dangerous Persons - Registration/Notification
in Turner v. Hawaii Paroling Auth., 1 P.3d 768, 780 (Haw. Ct. App. 2000), the Intermediate Court of Appeals of Hawaii held that the due process clause of the Hawaii constitution provides an independent basis for the due process right to a sex offender classification hearing before certain requirements and limitations may be imposed on the offender, even though such a hearing is not required by federal law. In reaching its holding, the court emphasized that the Hawaii constitution may provide greater protections than those afforded under the federal Constitution. It explained that while “‘the due process clause of the Hawaii Constitution is modeled after the fourteenth amendment to the United States Constitution, the due process protection under our state constitution is not necessarily limited to that provided by the United States Constitution.’”
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.
