Washington, DC – In response to the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision in Biden v. Nebraska, the American Constitution Society issued the following statements:

“The Court was right that the plaintiffs in DOE v. Brown lacked standing and should have reached the same conclusion with respect to the plaintiffs in Biden v. Nebraska. And yet, the Court would never miss an opportunity to enlarge its own power and diminish that of the Executive Branch,” said ACS President Russ Feingold. “Today’s combined decisions exemplify the partisan agenda of this packed Roberts Court and the egregious price that the American public is paying as a consequence.”

"Student debt too often imposes a crushing weight on Americans,” said ACS Director of Policy and Program for Economic Justice Elizabeth Binczik. “The Court, thinking itself wiser than Congress and the Executive Branch, has again appointed itself the national policymaker and now denies millions of student-loan borrowers their debt relief."
