intimidationthe tort of using unlawful pressure. It is settled that it is a tort in a three-party situation, that is, where A threatens B that if he does not do something to C, A will do something unlawful to B. Thus, any court action is by C, who is injured against A who used B to injure him. There is controversy as to whether it covers the situation between two parties in a contractual relationship.
