A federal appeals court ruled against the administrations $400 billion student loan forgiveness program, declining to halt a lower court's ruling that invalidated the efforts and setting up the latest dispute over the controversial debt relief effort likely to be appealed by the Supreme Court. The brief order from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit let stand a lower court ruling that had blocked the program's implementation. The administration has already extended a pause on student loan payments until as late as June 30, 2023. In response to the public's concern, the federal government argued the program was exempt from the process because it planned to discharge the debt via the HEROES Act. The administration added that the lower court's order invalidating the program did not provide either plaintiff a greater opportunity to comment on the debt relief program and that one of them loses $10,000 of loan forgiveness as a result.
