Definition of REPUGNANCY


REPUGNANCY

contracts. That which in a contract, is inconsistent
with something already contracted for; as, for example, where a man by deed
grants twenty acres of land, excepting one, this latter clause is repugnant,
and is to be rejected. But if a farm or tract of land is conveyed by general
terms, in exception of any number of acres, or any particular lot, it is not
repugnant, but valid. 4 Pick. 54; Vide 3 Pick. 272; 6 Cowen, 677.
