Rfv-sense: "To obtain from a proper authority". As a humble non-native opinion, it would seem to me that "to issue by" would be closer to the meaning than "obtain from". --Hekaheka (talk) 10:51, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

The existing definition is not wrong. Other dictionaries have "to obtain by legal or official process" and "to procure by application". In the citation the council was not issuing an order, which is an example of the language used for it doing something within its power, but applying to a court for the court to issue an injunction or court order.
I prefer something like the broader definition "to procure by application" as it covers things like loans and insurance policies, membership (in an organization that has dues or some kind of restriction), library cards, as well as injunctions, patents, etc. DCDuring TALK 12:05, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, I got it now. Please go ahead with your def, I think it would make the entry clearer. --Hekaheka (talk) 05:11, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

take out[edit]

Verb, sense 1. Along with entry for leave in above. Seems SOP to me. --SanctMinimalicen (talk) 22:57, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

It doesn't make much sense to delete this and leave the rest in (pun intended). DonnanZ (talk) 23:16, 19 March 2018 (UTC)
If this sense is felt to be non-idiomatic then it may be better to keep it under the "&lit" template, as is done with various other phrasal verbs? Mihia (talk) 02:09, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
Oh, I wasn't aware of that option. That would make sense. --SanctMinimalicen (talk) 03:55, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
