Actus Me Invite Factus Non Est Meus Actus Law and Legal Definition

Actus me invite factus non est meus actus is a legal maxim in Latin. It means ‘the act done by me against my will is not my act.’

For example, if someone points a gun to your head and ask you to make a threatening phone call, then you are basically innocent. This is because you did not do the phone call voluntarily, instead you were forced to.
