Communications Between ED and Servicers re: Preemption

On March 12, 2018, NSLDN submitted a FOIA request to the U.S. Department of Education seeking communications between the Department and federal loan servicers relating to the Department’s recent Notice of Interpretation regarding the preemption of state law.

A copy of the FOIA request is available here.

The Department has not yet provided documents in response to this request.

On June 21, 2018, NSLDN, represented by American Oversight, brought a lawsuit to enforce its rights under FOIA with respect to this Request.
