VF-302. Breach of Contract—Affirmative Defense—Duress

New April 2004; Revised December 2010

Directions for Use

The special verdict forms in this section are intended only as models. They may need to be modified depending on the facts of the case. This form is not a stand- alone verdict form. It may be incorporated into VF-300, Breach of Contract, if the elements of the affirmative defense are at issue.

This verdict form is based on CACI No. 332, Affırmative Defense—Duress. The verdict forms do not address all available affirmative defenses. The parties may need to create their own verdict forms to fit the issues involved in the case.

If there are multiple causes of action, users may wish to combine the individual forms into one form. If different damages are recoverable on different causes of action, replace the damages tables in all of the verdict forms with CACI No. VF-3920, Damages on Multiple Legal Theories.
