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).
Court Rule or Initiative, Termination of Parental Rights (Private) - Birth Parents
A court rule requires appointment of counsel for indigent parents in adoption cases where 1) the parents have Indian children; 2) the adoption alleges that the parents commited sexual assault/abuse resulting in the conception of a child and termination is in the best interests of the child; 3) any adoptions seeking to bypass the consent requirements.
