18 states and the District of Columbia are suing Betsy DeVos over student loan protections


Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is facing a lawsuit filed by 18 states and the District of Columbia over her delay of regulations that are meant to provide new protections for borrowers of federal student loans.

The Massachusetts-led lawsuit states that DeVos is illegally delaying the regulations finalized by the Obama administration that were set to go into effect on July 1 of this year.

The regulations made it easier for defrauded student loan borrowers to have their loans forgiven and prohibited colleges from requiring that students resolve complaints through arbitration instead of in a court.
