Walrond-Rogers v. ECMC, Sallie Mae


Decision from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of MA (Eastern Division). The court held that the debtor can claim "undue hardship" asking to discharge her student loan debts where the debtor was a mother who cared for her seriously ill, impaired child and whose only source of reliable income were SSDI benefits she received for her child. The court applied the "totality of the circumstances" test in determining whether excepting the debtor's loans from discharge would constitute an undue hardship.
