Student Debt Forgiveness Comes to the Supreme Court

Powerline by John Hinderaker February 5, 2023

In August of last year, the Biden administration announced, by executive order, that some $400 billion in outstanding student debt would be forgiven. There was no statutory basis for this order, and many assumed that it was an election-year Hail Mary that ultimately would lose in the courts, but would garner Democrat votes in the midterms. That appears to be what happened.

The legality of Biden’s purported debt forgiveness has now made its way to the Supreme Court in Biden v. Nebraska. The case will be argued at the end of this month.

On Friday, a group of amici filed a brief urging the Court to invalidate Biden’s order. It is probably the most impressive group of amici I have ever seen, including top constitutional scholars like Michael McConnell and political figures including William Barr, Mitch Daniels, Mick Mulvaney, and others. These amici are represented by Sidley and Austin, a major law firm.
