Before : FABE, Chief Justice, EASTAUGH, CARPENETI, WINFREE, and CHRISTEN, Justices.
The issue in this case is whether relevant statutes and regulations provide for cancellation of four student loans upon the recipient's medical disability. We conclude that they do not, and we affirm the denial of the recipient's request for medical cancellation of his loan obligations.
