Duress applied to a party to a contract by a third party will not be actionable against the other contracting party unless the other contracting party participated in, or otherwise had knowledge of, the duress. In Dunwoodie v Teachers Mutual Bank Ltd  NSWCA 24, a former teacher who had been coerced by members of a motorcycle gang to withdraw $60,000 from the respondent bank found that duress was no defence to a claim from the respondent for repayment of the money withdrawn.
Key Case: Dunwoodie v Teachers Mutual Bank Ltd  NSWCA 24.
