APPROBATE AND REPROBATE. In Scotland this term is used to signify to approve
and reject. It is a maxim quod approbo non reprobo. For example, if a
testator give his property to A, and give A's property to B, A shall not be
at liberty to approve of the will so far as the legacy is given to him, and
reject it as to the bequest of his property to B in other words, he cannot
approve and reject the will. 1 Bligh. 21; 1 Bell's Com. 146.
