A coerced gift


If a person is forced into giving a gift, the gift is invalid regardless of any contract the giver signed.

Even if the giver has no proof that he was coerced, if we (an outside authority, such as a court of law) know it was coerced, the gift is invalid.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 242:1)

Have a great day,
