Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today

In Black, Joseph M. v. Educational Testing Management Corp. and Margaret Spellings, Sec. of Ed., a 13-page opinion (SD Ind., ), Circuit Judge Wood writes:

The central issue in this case is whether a regulation promulgated by the Secretary of Education that allows the assessment of collection costs on defaulted student loans to be done on a formulaic basis was a permissible implementation of the governing statute, 20 U.S.C. § 1091a. The district court upheld the regulation, 34 C.F.R. § 682.410(b)(2), over the objection of a bankruptcy trustee, and accordingly allowed the claim for collection costs computed according to the regulation. The trustee appeals. We agree with the district court that the regulation was a permissible one, and we therefore affirm.
