Article 90 establishes the constitutional basis of State Responsibility for the unlawful damages that it may generate with the action or omission of public authorities. One of the greatest proven successes of the Constitution of 91, consisted in granting constitutional status to the State's liability regime, which, as Enrique Gil Botero points out in his book of Extra-contractual State Responsibility, “is nothing more than mere consequence of the philosophy that draws the Political Charter, circumscribed to the superior principles and values of the legal system, such as dignity, equality, freedom, justice, political pluralism, solidarity, equity, the Social State of Law, etc." Juan Casallas, associate of the litigation area of Holland & Knight, discusses this issue in the following Asuntos Legales article.
