Student Loan Servicing Alliance v. Taylor, et al.

An association of student loan servicers challenged the District of Columbia’s right to pass laws that better protect residents against problematic student loan servicing practices. NSLDN, together with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and the Center for Responsible Lending, submitted an amicus brief urging the court to reject the plaintiff loan servicer association’s argument that federal law bars states and the District from engaging in any regulatory oversight of loan servicers.  The brief argues that D.C.’s efforts to regulate loan servicers finds strong support in legal precedent and sound policy to prevent disastrous consequences for the most vulnerable student borrowers and communities, especially borrowers of color.
