Forcing a customer service person to sign a document under duress or threat
A Texas attorney could answer you best, as attorney conduct is governed by state codes for professional conduct and ethics. But your post remains open for three weeks. Until you have the chance to discuss your matter with an attorney in Texas, the way things generally work, regardless of jurisdiction, is that an attorney can use the possibility of lawsuit if it is a normal and reasonable option available. Lawsuits are used to enforce valid rights, and that's a given. But this does not mean that abusive conduct or ridiculous threats that have no legitimate legal basis are permissible. Good luck
