See PBESUMP- TION. CONCORD. In the old process of levying a fine of lands, the concord was an agreement between the parties (real or feigned) in which the deforciant (or he who keeps the other out of possession) acknowledges that the lands in question are the right of complainant; and, from the acknowledgment or admission of right thus made, the party who levies the fine is called the “cog- nizor,” and the person to whom it is levied the “cognizee.” 2 Bl. Comm. 350. The term also denotes an agreement between two persons, one of whom has a right of action against the other, settling what amends shall be made for the breach or wrong; a compromise or an accord. In old practice. An agreement between two or more, upon a trespass committed, by way of amends or satisfaction for it. Plowd. 5, 6, 8. Concordare leges legibus est optimus interpretandi modus. To make laws agree with laws is the best mode of interpreting them. Ilalk. Max. 70.
