Pharmacy Care Systems Ltd v Attorney-General

Pharmacy Care Systems Ltd v Attorney-General 17 PRNZ 308 is a cited case in New Zealand regarding the seven elements of duress. Pharmacy Care set up a high volume, low margin service to supply government institutions. One of these institutions was the Northern Regional Health Authority referred to as "North Health". Problems developed when North Health discovered that PCS was recycling drugs, i.e. billing North Health for supply, unused drugs, returned by institutions, that North Health had paid for. This resulted in North Health calling in an investigator, as well as with holding monies it owed from Pharmacy Care. To resolve the matter, Pharmacy Care agreed to enter into a Deed of Settlement, agreeing to refund $80,000 to North Health. However, 3 1/2 years Pharmacy Care sought to have the Deed of Settlement set aside, claiming it was entered into as the result of duress by North Health, claiming they threatened a fraud prosecution if it was not accepted; the Court of Appeal found no evidence.

And if it had found such evidence, the delay of 3 1/2 years in challenging the agreement amounted to affirmation of the contract
