What rules, all of them??  You don't provide enough information.

All I can tell you is that a court appointed attorney is your attorney and must protect you rights to the fullest extent of the law.  He is also bound by the rules of the state bar association. For example, this includes confidentiality on any privileged communications between the two of you  even though the state is the one who pays him.  Other than that you would have to provide more answers to get any detailed response.

Thank you.
