Private Student Loans continue to be discharged in bankruptcy

In yet another decision by a bankruptcy court, a private loan by Navient, a popular student loan lender, was discharged in Chapter 13.   While government loans cannot be discharged, the recent COVID-19 legislation has now implemented the debt forgiveness previously promised to those working in the non-profit sector.  This is a good sign for student borrowers and is trending toward equalizing the playing field in bankruptcy.
