The Heras case: The Public Administration’s responsibility for illegal doping sanctions

On 25 April 2017, the Spanish Supreme Court (ruling no. 708/2017) upheld the National Court’s decision in the case involving Spanish cyclist Roberto Heras which declared the Public Administration responsible for the damages suffered by Heras as a result of an illegal doping sanction imposed against him by the Spanish Cycling Federation and awarded €724,904.86 in compensation. Rubén Agote and Jose M. Martínez Salamanca of Cuatrecasas, analyse the Heras case which has taken 12 years to see Heras awarded with compensation, and the Public Administration’s responsibility for illegal doping sanctions.
