Right to counsel - seizure of vehicles used for explosives transport
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, Other subject area
If a "vehicle, vessel, or aircraft" is subject to seizure or forfeiture on the grounds that it is intentionally used by its owner to transport explosives illegally, the court must appoint counsel to represent any owner who is either out of state or unknown. R.I. Gen. Laws § 23-28.28-35(c).
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.
