EXACTION, torts. A willful wrong done by an officer, or by one who, under
color of his office, takes more fee or pay for his services than what the
law allows. Between extortion and exaction there is this difference; that in
the former case the officer extorts more than his due, when something is due
to him; in the latter, he exacts what is not his due, when there is nothing
due to him. Wishard; Co. Litt. 368.
