Discretionary appointment of 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, Domestic Violence - Alleged Victim
The court may appoint counsel to represent indigent victims of stalking in hearings for orders of protection, where the petition is not filed by the district attorney. Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 7-3-507(d).
The court also has the permissive authority to appoint counsel to "assist and advise" the petitioner in a hearing for an order of protection due to domestic abuse. Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 35-21-103(e) (2008). In such cases, "[t]he court may require the respondent to pay… reasonable attorney's fees whether the attorney is court appointed or retained by petitioner." Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 35-21-103(h).
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.
