(1)  Conservatorship of the Person and Estate of Eric B., S261812
This case presents the following issue: Does equal protection require that persons subject to a conservatorship under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act (Welf. & Inst. Code, § 5350) have the same right to invoke the statutory privilege not to testify as persons subject to involuntary commitments under Penal Code section 1026.5 after a finding of not guilty by reason of insanity?

(2)  In re Christopher L., S265910
Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed orders in a juvenile dependency proceeding. The court limited review to the following issue: Is it structural error, and thus reversible per se, for a juvenile court to proceed with jurisdiction and disposition hearings without an incarcerated parent’s presence and without appointing the parent an attorney?

(3)  People v. Bloom (Robert Maurice), [Automatic Appeal], S095223
This matter is an automatic appeal from a judgment of death.
