I am watching Shark in the afternoons and they are always referring to

Her MO and then she OPed and ...Or MOed (emoed)...I mean....who can understand that? rolleyes

The context is a law firm and this is normally said referring to the criminal or the deceased.

I hear some research scientists have started to use lawyers for their experiments instead of rats. They are doing this for two reasons.

1) The scientists do not get too attached to the lawyers.

2) There are some things that even rats will not do.

Reason #3: There are more lawyers than rats.

LOL

Take your pick from http://www.acronymfinder.com/ when in doubt.

Good resource, Vikingo!

Is this a crime or legal-type series?

OP stands for "Order of Protection" in some states' courts.

So what is an Order of Protection? Is that when the police sit outside someone's hospital room, outside their house, etc. because they think the person is under a death threat or is is similar to a TRO commonly used in TV series (Temporary Restraining Order)?
Yes, they have different names in different places.

They are a misnomer. How does a piece of paper protect somebody? It is just an order from a judge saying that if the respondent commits a crime of violence against the petitioner, that it will be an extra crime for doing it against the judge's orders. Like that's going to stop someone if they are going to do it in the first place.

There are, however, No Contact OP's. They make it a crime for the respondent to have any contact or attempted contact whatsoever with the petitioner. A good thing if the person respects the law and you want him/her out of your life, but still not going to keep them from attacking if they're set on doing it.

There was a lady murdered in our state last week that had an OP in place against her killer. Again, the police cannot do anything until the respondent breaks the law, and many times by then, it's too late.

That's too funny! Although I've never heard of the show, I immediately thought "lawyer" when she said it was titled "Shark."

LOL

LOL LOL

And that, coming from one!!

I actually have different terms in mind for that breed, but we don't want to get started on lawyer jokes here!

..and then she "Order of Protection"-ed?
I heard a lawyer say one time, "She OP'd him," meaning that she had him served with an Order of Protection. It is by no means commonly used as a verb, though, at least not in my circles.

.... I've not heard that term used relating to animal behavior, although I guess it could be.

Where did you get the idea that an animal is involved? She said the show was about a law firm.From the show's title. I think she updated her post after I had clicked "Post Reply." Maybe not. Maybe I just overlooked that line. Sorry. oh oh

jeje, I did say so right from the start (the law firm etc) but I thought rocco was joking. I thought this was a very famous series....the guy's name is actually Stark.
