Roe v. College Access Network

Appellant debtor, proceeding pro se, filed for bankruptcy after borrowing approximately $ 88,000 to attend college. Because her student loans could not be discharged absent a finding of undue hardship as provided by 11 U.S.C.S. § 523(a)(8), she brought an adversary proceeding in the bankruptcy court. The Bankruptcy Court for the District of Utah concluded that the loans could not be discharged. The debtor appealed.
Ruling: 
Bankruptcy court properly held student loan debt was nondischargeable absent evidence of alleged disability or good faith attempts to repay.
