The Supreme Court on Monday decided to take up a case on the Biden administration's student loan forgiveness plan after the Job Creators Network, a small business group, filed a lawsuit challenging President Biden's executive order.

Justice Samuel Alito said the court will consider whether the Education Department's forgiveness was "statutorily authorized and was adopted in a procedurally proper manner," after the Job Creators Network argued the bailout constituted executive overreach.

The court will hear arguments in the case in February 2023.

The Supreme Court is already scheduled to hear another case in February brought forward by six Republican-led states against the administration's student loan forgiveness program. 

The Biden administration asked the Supreme Court earlier this month to place a pause on a ruling against the debt cancellation plan.
