January 11, 2023 — Amicus Brief

COVID-19 has made cancellation a necessity for student loan borrowers, writes borrower advocates, including NCLC, and legal aid organizations in a brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court.

By tailoring the student debt relief to reduce the prospect of widespread defaults upon a return to repayment, the Department acted well within its HEROES Act authority to ensure that borrowers were not in a worse position in relation to their student loans because of the pandemic.

This Court should affirm the district court’s judgment in Nebraska and reverse the district court’s judgment in Brown.
