( The Supreme Court on Tuesday is set to begin a two-week argument session which will include listening to the case regarding student debt forgiveness and a controversial liability shield known as Section 230 which Big Tech had maintained is necessary for social media.

The justices are set to examine the scope of Section 230 before proceeding with a hearing on Student Loan Forgiveness.

The Biden administration lawyers are going to need to challenge the lawsuit against the forgiveness of up to $20,000 in student debt for all qualifying borrowers.

Both cases are expected to have a ruling by the summer.

  1. Section 230

On Tuesday the judges will hear Gonzalez v. Google, which would end the protections previously granted to internet companies for the past two decades. The plaintiffs, a family of a victim killed during a series of attacks by Islamic State terrorists in Paris in November 2015, have sued Google for not abiding by federal anti-terrorism laws. Google has argued that its search recommendations are protected by Section 230, which means that the company is not liable for the content added online by third-party users.

  1. Student debt forgiveness

The Biden administration is trying to stop the attempts led by six Republican-led states and two individual loan borrowers who would not qualify for the student loan forgiveness program from completely blocking the program. If the administration is successful they would potentially be able to forgive up to $20,000 in debt for qualifying individuals.
