As I understand it, when Bush signs the bill there is still a chance the courts could overturn it. How does that work? Does the ACLU or another entity need to sue the U.S. for it? What happens if the courts overturn it? Does Congress need to write a new law? What if the courts don't overturn it? Can we, the people, sue the U.S. about it?
