What is the test for a motion where a defendant's right to counsel is implicated by prosecutorial discovery?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from Hobbs v. Municipal Court, 233 Cal.App.3d 670, 284 Cal.Rptr. 655 (Cal. App. 1991):

Hobbs relies principally on People v. Collie, supra, 30 Cal.3d 43, 55, 177 Cal.Rptr. 458, 634 P.2d 534. 17 However, the relevant portion of Collie is dictum, which merely discusses the possibility that a defendant's right to counsel would be implicated by prosecutorial discovery.
