Terri's Fight: Judge's Decision

This can't be right. Guardian Unlimited has this report about someone's offer to pay $1 million to Michael Schiavo if he would desist from ending his wife's life by starvation. This bit here jumped out at me:
 Even if Michael Schiavo had taken the money, Felos said, there is still a court order requiring removal of the tube next Friday. A judge ordered that the feedings be stopped after finding ``clear and convincing'' evidence she would not want to be kept alive in her current state.
That's George Felos, counsel for Michael Schiavo. Come again? Now the judge can go overriding the authority of the legal guardian, were he inclined to change his mind?
