Spanish term or phrase: cuantía de responsabilidad civil
From an article about child-friendly juvenile justice, in which the authors are discussing the impact of using legalese when dealiing with juveniles:

En otra ocasión, se pudo observar que a algunos chicos no les quedaba claro cuál era la cuantía de responsabilidad civil que se les pedía, debido al vocabulario que se había empleado

I am not clear if this refers to damages, compensation, civil liability or something else. There is no other context.
