The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hold oral arguments this week in a case concerning debt forgiveness rules for student loans in bankruptcy cases, The Chronicle of Higher Education reported on Sunday. The Court must decide whether to uphold a ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that allowed a borrower to gain forgiveness for some of his student loans without demonstrating in court that "undue hardship" would result if the payments were enforced, The Chronicle reported. The main question before the Supreme Court is whether an error in a bankruptcy proceeding such as failure to find for undue hardship can invalidate a bankruptcy court's decision. Although experts do not expect the Supreme Court's decision to change how most courts approach student bankruptcy cases, the Court will likely clarify the requirements of the "undue hardship" standard, which has been inconsistently applied in past cases, according to The Chronicle.
