Biden administration asks Supreme Court to allow student debt forgiveness plan to continue

The Biden administration on Friday asked the Supreme Court to reinstate its federal student loan program after a federal appeals court issued an injunction against the plan.

That ruling by the federal appeals court for the 8th Circuit in St. Louis was the latest in a series of legal challenges to President Joe Biden’s plan to cancel up to $20,000 in student debt for millions of Americans. The Biden administration stopped accepting applications for its relief earlier in the month after a federal district judge in Texas struck down its plan last week, calling it “unconstitutional.”
