Holding: A bankruptcy court must determine that a debtor suffers from undue hardship before it cancels student loan debt in bankruptcy. However, even if the bankruptcy court doesn't make such a determination, its original order to cancel the debt may be enforced if the creditor did not object by a given deadline.
Judgment: Affirmed, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas on March 23, 2010.
