From Latin obrogō.
obrogate (third-person singular simple present obrogates, present participle obrogating, simple past and past participle obrogated)
- (law, rare) To annul a law by enacting a new law, as opposed to repealing the former law.
- 1880, Johannes Voet, translated by James Buchanan, Johannes Voet, His Commentary on the Pandects, page 56:
- That a law is surrogated, when anything is added to the former law; that it is obrogated when anything in the former law is changed.
