DOJ adds that the Department of Education is already in the process of opting the @PacificLegal plaintiff out of $20,000 in student debt relief.

New filing in the @PacificLegal case challenging student debt cancellation: The Department of Justice has filed notice confirming that “any borrower who qualifies for automatic debt relief” will “be given an opportunity to opt out,” which blows up the plaintiff’s standing theory.

In a statement to @JessBravin , Alito suggests that Kagan “cross[ed] an important line” when she warned that the Supreme Court is losing its legitimacy. (He doesn’t identify her by name, but it’s pretty clear he’s alluding to her recent comments.)

This is terrific news. I feared the Supreme Court would end live audio this term. But it looks like live audio is here to stay. I would, of course, prefer cameras in the courtroom, but I think this is a solid compromise that will dramatically increase transparency.

that’s right, it isn’t the driver in the two ton vehicle who is at fault, it is the child riding his bike in his neighborhood

Very kind of them to bring this case before the program has been finalized so that the administration has time to tweak it in order to undermine the standing claim

The new lawsuit against Biden's student loan relief program reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Bart plays three games of chess at once and loses them all.

To put Bruen in context, we've now had about as many decisions striking down laws on Second Amendment grounds in the *3 months* since Bruen as we had in the nation as a whole in the *60 years* preceding Heller, according to research from @adamwinkler in 2006.

Again, @PacificLegal 's theory of standing rests on Garrison filing Indiana taxes. The government could nuke this case immediately if it determines that he's actually based in D.C. Maybe this was all a clerical error and Garrison has been in Indiana forever! We will find out. 4/4

Specifically, the Wayback Machine indicates that @PacificLegal changed Garrison's location from D.C. to Indiana sometime today, after it lifted the embargo on its lawsuit. Before: After: This could pose a problem in court. 3/x

If the plaintiff—PLF employee Frank Garrison—lives in the District of Columbia, then the entire theory of the case implodes, because D.C. does not tax student debt relief as income. So it's curious that PLF changed Garrison's location from DC to Indiana after filing suit. 2/x

. @PacificLegal 's case against student debt relief rests on the claim that its plaintiff, a PLF employee, will be harmed because he lives in Indiana, which taxes debt relief as income. But until Tuesday morning, PLF said he worked out of the DC office. 1/x h/t @millennial_debt
