ED Official: Currently No Time Set to Review Borrower Defense Claims Due to Injunction

Inside Higher Education reports that the principal deputy under secretary of the U.S. Department of Education stated at a congressional hearing yesterday that there is currently no time set to review pending borrower defense claims because of an injunction imposed by a California court on the use of a formula that the department had been using when reviewing these claims. According to Inside Higher Education, the Department of Education official "told Representative Ayanna Pressley, a Massachusetts Democrat, in response to questions on the backlog that she could not commit to a time frame for awarding more debt relief pending a further ruling on the court's injunction issued last year. The borrower-defense process allows borrowers to seek cancellation of their federal student loans if they were misled or deceived by their college."
