BASSA MERCADO, Jaime e VIERA ALVAREZ, Christian. A New Hermeneutic Turn of the Supreme Court Regarding the Application of the Economic Protection Recourse. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2012, n.38, pp. 661-683. ISSN 0718-6851. doi: 10.4067/S0718-68512012000100016.
The Supreme Court changed the interpretation for the economic protection action, setting a new stage in its application, now restricted to the second paragraph of the article 19 Nº 21 of the Chilean Constitution. The paper presents the historic stages of the jurisprudence, the main critiques that doctrine has formulated to this last one and the author’s view on the new jurisprudential decision and its critics.
