Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
No, if no civil suit has been filed raising the alleged duress from your actions, there is no reason to respond to the allegations. You simply need to maintain your documentation of what occurred and responding to the claims of duress does not really help your claims against the HOA. What helps your claims against the HOA is the proof of their lack of action upon your notice to them and the refusal of the board to provide you proper information that was due to you as a member on the other board members so you could file your claim to the board about their negligent care of the property.
There are no real benefits to addressing this allegation that you caused her duress that led to her resignation.
