Universal right to legal care

Raymond Clark III, the alleged killer in the murder of Annie Le, the research student at Yale University was seen in court with a new lawyer. His original lawyer, David Dworski, was with him at the time of his arrest. But now, at his arraignment, he has Joseph Lopez and Beth Merkin, public defenders handling his case.

Me thinks somebody did a wallet biopsy and decided this case was not worth his time. Wouldn't it be nice if doctors could abandon their clients (patients) just because they could not afford their care? Where is the universal right to legal care in all this talk about reform? What is more important than fighting in court for somebody's life?
