Education Secretary DeVos has Appealed Judge Frank’s Decision Discharging a Relatively Young Single Parent’s Student Loans

On July 10, 2017, the United States Secretary for the United States Department of Education filed a Certificate of Appeal in a case in which a Bankruptcy judge discharged a relatively young single parent’s student loans. The Debtor had only a part-time job and the judge noted that in this case, the “repayment period” under the second prong of Brunner is the seven (7) year repayment period remaining on the Debtor’s loan, not the twenty (20) or twenty-five (25) year repayment period potentially available in income-based, extended repayment period programs.

You will find Judge Frank’s conclusions, as well as a link to his decision, below.
