The Supreme Court Is Taking Over Two Lawsuits

The Supreme Court will now be taking over the legal challenges that President Biden's Student Loan Forgiveness program has been facing.

The Supreme Court will now be taking over the legal challenges that President Biden’s Student Loan Forgiveness program has been facing.

On February 28th, it will take on two lawsuits that have caused the pause of debt relief so far.

As the Supreme Court addresses the case filed by GOP-led states, it will consider two questions. One of which is “whether the Republican-led states that filed the lawsuit have standing” and “whether Biden’s plan to cancel student debt exceeds the education secretary’s authority or is “arbitrary and capricious.”

When the Supreme Court addresses the lawsuit filed by two student-loan borrowers that argue they do not qualify for the program, it will consider whether the plaintiffs in the case have standing, and whether Biden’s debt relief was implemented in a “procedurally proper manner.”

The plan will remain on hold until the court’s ruling.
