revival
The process of renewing the operative force of a judgment which has remained dormant or unexecuted for so long a time that execution cannot be issued upon it without new process to reanimate it. The act of renewing the legal force of a contract or obligation, which had ceased to be sufficient foundation for an action, on account of the running of the statute of limitations, by giving a new promise or acknowledgment of it. A will may be revived under certain conditions if the testator revokes an instrument which purported to revoke his or her will. Many states require republication (q.v.) of the former will as a requisite to revival
