Conservative critics of President Joe Biden's plan to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt won a victory

when a federal judge in Texas declared that the programme was illegal and had to be annulled.

A lawsuit supported by the Job Creators Network Foundation on behalf of two debtors

It was decided by U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman, a Trump nominee in Fort Worth.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis had already temporarily halted the debt relief plan

 As it considered a request to enjoin it from six Republican-led states 

While they appealed the dismissal of their own lawsuit.

Conservative state attorneys general and legal organisations have filed multiple cases against Biden's plan

Pittman said in a 26-page decision that the $400 billion student loan forgiveness programme was not authorised under the HEROES Act
