Bankruptcy Ruling in Student Loan Case
WASHINGTON The Supreme Court on Tuesday made it easier for people who say they cannot repay their student loans to receive bankruptcy protection. But the case arose in an unusual way, and the ruling is unlikely to have a broad impact.
The case involved Francisco J. Espinosa, an airline ramp agent who took out four student loans in 1988 and 1989 for a total of $13,250 to attend a trade school in Arizona. Four years later, he filed for protection under the bankruptcy laws, proposing to repay the principal over five years without interest.
