Will Bush stop wiretapping just because a judge reminds him it is illegal?

Judge orders stop to warrantless phone wiretapping
(08-17) 11:46 PDT DETROIT -- A federal judge ordered a halt today to the Bush administration's warrantless wiretapping of calls between Americans and alleged foreign terrorists, saying the program violates the Constitution as well as a law requiring judicial approval for all electronic surveillance.

"There are no hereditary kings in America and no powers not created by the Constitution,'' said U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in rejecting President Bush's claim that he had the inherent power to authorize the program.
You knew and I knew and Bush knew that what the NSA was doing was illegal. Now a court has ordered it stopped.

Anyone wanna place bets on whether it will be stopped or not just because a judge orders it? I hope it will be stopped, and at the same time I'm wondering what Cheney had planned for this contingency.
