Federal Judge Tosses Suit Against Biden Student Loan Forgiveness Plan for Long-term Borrowers

Judge Thomas Ludington dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by two conservative groups intended to halt the Biden administration’s plan to cancel $39 billion in student loans for more than 800,000 borrowers.

In an order issued Monday, U.S. District Judge Thomas Ludington of the Eastern District of Michigan dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice, arguing that the groups did not have the standing for their complaint. Ludington said that the groups’ alleged injuries were not sufficient.

"But—even assuming that Plaintiffs' alleged injury was sufficient—they have not adequately demonstrated a causal link between Defendants’ action and an identifiable injury," the judge wrote in the 18-page order.
