Supreme Court Rejects Request To Block Bidens Student Loan Forgiveness

The Supreme Court turned down a request to stop the Biden administration's programme to help people with student loan debt.

A group of Wisconsin taxpayers requested Justice Amy Coney Barrett to suspend the programme. The request had been sent in on Wednesday.

Barrett is in charge of these kinds of applications that come from cases in the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which includes Wisconsin.

This coming weekend, the loan relief plan will start to help millions of people get rid of up to $20,000 in student debt.

Last weekend, after the U.S. Department of Education released a beta test, 8 million people applied for the program.

The Brown County Taxpayers Association of Wisconsin filed a protest against the program. They filed a lawsuit in the federal court.

This month, a U.S. District Court judge threw out the lawsuit, saying that the group didn't have the right to stop the plan until the case was decided.

In a letter to Barrett on Wednesday, the group requested judge or the Supreme Court to halt the debt relief program until the outcome of its appeal.

Dan Lennington, deputy counsel for the taxpayers group's lawyers, said, "Of course, we're disappointed."

Lennington remarked, "But that's not legal." "The courts will still look at student loan forgiveness, and as we pushed this week, it might be delayed."
