Here is the first couple of paras of the review and refocusing post on the Turner Symposium on the ConcurringOpinions blog:
As of day three, post Turner, some trends have begun to emerge in the commentary, on this blog at least.

Posters commented at length with respect to the two core issues raised by Turner: i) the extent of trial court judges’ obligations to assure “fundamental fairness” through a variety of procedures, in civil contempt/incarceration or other types of cases and ii) the impact on whether and when a civil right to counsel is required by federal constitutional law.
