President Joe Biden’s $400 billion student loan forgiveness plan will finally get its day at the Supreme Court on Tuesday. But some experts predict that by the time arguments end, the administration may wish it had been somewhere else.

Biden’s proposal, which would forgive up to $20,000 for some borrowers, is almost certain to be in for a rough ride before a court with a 6-3 conservative majority and an increasingly skeptical view of agencies acting without clear approval from Congress.
