Yes, I found it curious in my civil case (Constitutional Law) that I had in poverty no right to counsel and none would be provided to me.
Where a CRIMINAL, in poverty has a right to council which will be provided.
I found my ‘RIGHTS’ on line current ‘law’ which the Federal and US Supreme Courts ignored.
I presume because criminal cases must be prosecuted where civil rights need not be.
I requested in my litigation that the Courts explain why my rights by current law were not available in my case, but no explanation was given
