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
A court must appoint counsel upon request for a minor who seeks to judicially bypass the parental notification requirement for an abortion. Fla. Stat. § 390.01114(4)(a).
The Florida Supreme Court has also held that it is inappropriate to appoint counsel for the unborn fetus. In re T.W., 551 So.2d 1186 (Fla. 1989).

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.
