VICIOUS INTROMISSION. In Scotch law, the assuming of possession or charge of goods and chattels of a deceased person without authority, as where a person takes such property before the will of the deceased owner is probated. Such a person corresponds to an executor de son tort in English law, and is liable in damages which may be caused by his acts.
