A: It appears that an amended order was filed, likely setting or resetting certain hearings (possibly due to COVID-19 and the Oklahoma Supreme Court's administrative orders pertaining to cases currently scheduled through May 15). ORAS often is used in criminal cases to refer to the Ohio Risk Assessment System, but without more information, I have no way of knowing why it says that. The order will contain much more detail than the docket entry you reference. You can generally view documents on ODCR for a fee. Otherwise, a copy of the order will be at the court clerk's office in the county in which her case was filed.
