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, Sexually Dangerous Persons - Commitment
Tex. Health & Safety Code § 841.005 states that in cases involving the commitment of sexually violent persons, "the Office of State Counsel for Offenders shall represent an indigent person subject to a civil commitment proceeding under this chapter. If for any reason the Office of State Counsel for Offenders is unable to represent an indigent person …at a civil commitment proceeding under this chapter, the court shall appoint other counsel to represent the indigent person."
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.
