These situations may be more relevant for defendants who are unable to hire a lawyer and who rely on court-appointed representation during a trial or appeal.

Uber has come under fire from taxi interests and lawmakers in a number of cities, but advocacy groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving have been impressed by data from law enforcement agencies and surveys of Uber riders and are enthusiastically backing the concept of ride-sharing.
