I've had six attorney's now in my false DCFS/Dependency Case in Los Angeles, California. I recently had a Marsden hearing regarding my last attorney not timely filing subpoenas to have witnesses at my trial or doing anything I requested of him. The Judge (Department 406) ruled against me and told me I had to either use the attorney, hire my own, or represent myself. I wouldn't commit to making the decision, so the Judge said fine, then you will represent yourself.
I don't have the money to hire an attorney, I've never fired an attorney in this case before , and I can't represent myself against a corrupt system. I can file a Writ of Mandamus and plan to do so.
What I would like to know... does anyone know of any SPECIFIC Marsden case law, or case law regarding the appointment of counsel that has or could be used in a Writ or Appeal? I need to show that the Judge erred and I should be allowed appointed counsel.
Please let me know, Thanks.[email protected]
