Elaine Parker, who leads the Job Creators Network Foundation as president, says the group submitted a request to the Supreme Court asking it to reject the Biden administration’s legal request to stay a district court decision that blocked the student loan bailout.
If the nation’s highest court agrees to Biden’s request, the debt cancellation would proceed as planned even though legal challenges are pending in lower courts across the country.
"The Supreme Court should reject this cynical attempt to claim victory and block the administration's stay application," Parker tells AFN.
Parker and Job Creators filed a federal lawsuit in October in a North Texas federal court.
The filing submitted this week asks the high court to set the Job Creator’s oral arguments on the same day as a multi-state lawsuit filed by numerous attorneys general.
After the president announced in August the U.S. Dept. of Education is setting up a program to wipe away student alone debt with a $20,000 cap, that plan triggered a number of lawsuits.
In a ruling announced Dec. 4, the U.S. Supreme Court said the bailout is on hold pending oral arguments that are scheduled for February.
