State Rubbish Collectors Asso. v. Siliznoff, 38 Cal. 2d 330 (Cal. 1952)

Defendant claims he was threatened by plaintiff's associates to pay up on certain notes.   Plaintiff collected trash for defendant's place of business.   Defendant felt like he had no other choice but to sign notes over to plaintiff.   The threats consisted of bodily injury and severe damages to his business.
