Proceedings in a court over one charged (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

action

Here is my best explanation:

'proceedings' is the definition.

(action is a kind of proceedings)

'a court over one charged' is the subsidiary indication.

'court' becomes 'ct'.

'over' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'one charged' becomes 'ion' (I've seen this in other clues).

'a'+'ct'+'ion'='action'

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for action that I've seen before include "Take proceedings", "Performance", "Accomplishment", "Lawsuit; armed conflict", "court case", "SECOND PART OF 15", "Not CIA (anag)", "The process of doing something", "claim in court" and "Court case".)
