Supreme Court Grants Cert on Student Loan - Chapter 13 Case

Tom Goldstein at scotusblog.com got it right - the Supreme Court has accepted cert in United Student Aid Fund v. Espinosa.  In Espinosa, the debtor provided in the chapter 13 plan that the unpaid portion of the student loan is discharged at the end of the plan period.  Of course, student loans are not discharged unless there is an "undue hardship" but the lender did not object to the plan and accepted the payments thereafter.  This case is really about notice.  The Court invited the Solicitor General to file a brief.
