The editor is circumventing court orders (6)


I believe the answer is:


'orders' is the definition.
('edict' can be a synonym of 'order')

'the editor is circumventing court' is the wordplay.
'the editor' becomes 'ed' (abbreviation).
'circumventing' means one lot of letters goes inside another (I've seen this in other clues).
'court' becomes 'ct' (abbreviation used in road names).
'is' enclosing 'ct' is 'icts'.

(Other definitions for edicts that I've seen before include "Proclamation" , "rulings" , "'Decrees, fiats (6)'" , "Commands" , "Orders proclaimed by an authority" .)
